Time Trader is an organized exchange network through which members earn Time Credits (TC) for time spent helping other members. One hour of service earns one TC. With TC, members can "buy" services they want or need. For example, if you give one hour of childcare, you can receive one hour of painting, accounting, transportation assistance, or a piano lesson, and the list goes on...
Everyone’s time and service are valued equally.
Time Trader is a FREE organized exchange system through which members earn time credits for time spent helping other members. In exchange, you can use the time credits you accrue to 'buy’ service that you want or need. One hour of service equals one time credit and everyone’s time and service are valued equally. Time Trader keeps track of service offers, requests, exchanges, and time credits through an online database called Time and Talents.
Here is how it works : Trader Albert fixes Trader Janet’s fence, which takes 2 hours. He earns 2 time credits. With his time credits he purchases 2 one-hour guitar lessons from Trader Brad. Trader Brad spends his time credits on getting someone to help him paint his barn. It’s easy: give what you want, get what you need!!
Anyone and everyone (all ages welcome); subject to acceptable application and completion of a short orientation.
Time Trader connects people and unmet needs with untapped resources by enabling individuals to use their everyday skills to benefit a network of people.
