Welcome to SkillShare

SkillShare is a Time Bank headquartered in Boulder, CO, that connects residents of the Colorado front range to each other and to community service organizations by allowing them to trade services through the use of time credits, known as TimeDollars, which constitute an alternative currency, one based on time, rather than cash. For every hour you spend doing something for someone in the SkillShare community, you earn one TimeDollar. Then you have one TimeDollar to spend on having someone do something for you. Simple, but powerful, both for you and for your community. 

TimeDollars create benefits for individuals, families, and organizations by providing affordable access to services and opportunities for giving back. This “win-win” is the foundation for positive community building and social change. Within Time Banking, everyone’s skills are equally valued and everyone benefits. SkillShare is all about helping. SkillShare members do that when they

  • Make exchanges with each other
  • Volunteer time to one of our Partners
