Tampa Bay Timebank
Suncoast Co-op and Tmapa Bay Time offer discounted membership for co-op members!
Tampa Bay Time is a community skills exchange, also known as a “time bank.” Time banking is a way to exchange services as an alternative to the cash economy. In Tampa Bay Time we trade skills gained from work, education, life experience, hobbies, and volunteering, while making friends and building community.
Time banking is egalitarian. All activities are valued, and all activities are valued equally. One hour equals one hour. Each hour of work is equal to every other, regardless of the activity. We earn credit by doing something for another member, then we can use the credit by having any other member do something for us.
Please see the Frequently Asked Questions (Member Handbook) to learn more about how Tampa Bay Time works.
