Welcome to the website of the University of Pennsylvania’s first Timebank!
A Timebank is an alternative currency where you give time to get time. You help someone out, earn an hour, then exchange it for a service from anyone else in the network.
We are a newly formed student-run Timebank at the University of Pennsylvania. Our goal is to create a circle of reciprocity for the campus community. We are supported by the Creative Ventures project of The Kelly Writers House.
This blog will be a place to keep up with events, news, and collaborations with the campus community and beyond. Follow us here, on Twitter @PennTimebank, and on Facebook.
We are thrilled to be building an Penn-specific economy built on principles of reciprocity and mutual self interest with you! Check out our Resources section to learn more.
