VIDEO: Time Trade Circle
What if you joined a bank where you deposited hours, instead of money?
Time banks are a way to bring people together to share their time and talents while building community. In this video, New Dream profiles the Time Trade Circle in Cambridge, MA which started in 2007 and now has over 800 members.
The video is part of the Guide to Sharing, the first in a series of guides that New Dream is producing for our new Community Action Kit.
About the Community Action Kit
The New Dream Community Action Kit is a creative, fun, and easy-to-use online Kit that promotes collective action and civic engagement to build more sustainable, healthier, and happier communities. The Kit consists of a series of guides to help people around the country organize and implement projects in their own neighborhoods. Each guide is divided into four “Action Idea” sections, each containing a written introduction, step-by-step tips for how to carry out that action, and a video featuring a successful community case study. The guide concludes with a listing of recommended resources and organizations.
