About The Event

The five core values, introduced in the book by Edgar Cahn called No More Throw-Away People, is the heart of successful timebanking and stood the test of time.

This 5 part series will begin by exploring and sharing how you applied these values with your community.

Next Town Hall we will talk about the first core value, Assets.

We have the capacity to love, to learn, to play, to build - we all have assets to give.

  • A 92-year-old member of a social HMO in Brooklyn, New York earns time dollars by bringing a joke or cartoon into her health care provider's office and sharing it, one by one, with staff.
  • A teenager charged with truancy fulfills her sentence of community service imposed by a teenage jury by tutoring first and second graders. And magically, the learning is happening on both ends and in new ways for both tutor and tutee.
  • The inmates at Gloucester Remand Prison earn time credits by refurbishing bicycles that are shipped out to developing countries, and the prisoner's families then use those credits to buy the support they need from people in their local community.

-Excerpts from No More Throw-Away People

Please join us and share your experience utilizing your assets in your community.
