Here is a list of the types of skills members have offered or requested in the timebank. The most common topics are here, but if you have a specialist skill that doesn't fit in to any of the categories, please be sure to let us know and we will add it in.
All members' actual offers and requests, along with their account balance, are held on another website which manages the transactions of hundreds of timebanks across the world. To get the most out of your timebanking we recommend that you use the Time and Talents application on the hOurworld website, which you learn to use during your orientation. Please go to the Members section to log in, or to watch a video to remind you how to use the application.
If you still struggle a bit with the application (you're not alone!), we will post the most recent Offers and Requests on the following pages, along with a form for you to fill in with your instructions. This will go to a timebroker who will update your Time and Talents record on your behalf.
