Time Banking in Long Beach

The Long Beach Time Exchange is a time banking community, where members use an currency called time credits to exchange skills and services.

Members earn one time credit for each hour that they help others, and spend one time credit for each hour that they receive a favor, service, or lesson from another. In the process of completing time exchanges, we learn new skills and uncover our gifts, make new friends, work to create sustainability for ourselves, and our great city.

While many of our members use our private online software called Community Weaver and a member’s only Facebook Group to connect to other members, we also host a potluck once a month on the second Sunday from 3-5pm in various locations, and have coordinators who can help people connect off-line.


The Long Beach Time Exchange is a partner of the Long Beach Building Healthy Communities initiative, made possible by The California Endowment. We are fiscally sponsored by The Catalyst Network of Communities, and are an affiliate member of TimeBanks USA.
