The Long Beach Time Exchange is a group of volunteers coordinating a community network to facilitate the sharing of time and talents for the common good. Members give one hour of service to another, and receive one time credit. You can use the credits in turn to receive services — or you can donate them to others.
Services exchanged over 20,000 hours through the Long Beach Time Exchange in the past thirteen years are core functions for a healthy society— childcare, transportation, eldercare, household repairs, homework help, Spanish and ESL classes, cooking, respite care, office assistance, tutoring, yard work, small business development, companionship, housecleaning and anything else that our members decide to offer! Members are encouraged to launch community benefit projects and initiatives that bring neighbors together around some common values.
Long Beach Time Exchange was a non-profit prior to the pandemic, but is now fully run by volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering to keep LBTE running, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org. This volunteer time can earn you time credits with your volunteer hours as well.
