Overview

Omaha Time Exchange is a network of people and organizations in Omaha, Nebraska, who offer their services, skills, and time to meet the needs of friends, neighbors, and the larger community. Any resident of the city can join the Omaha Time Exchange and start earning time credits by contributing to other members. After earning time credits, members can spend them or donate them to other members.

How the Omaha Time Exchange Works

A member requests or offers a service by posting the request on the community board, part of the Omaha Time Exchange website. If you want to provide a posted service, you earn time credits by performing the service. If you want to receive a service, you spend time credits to purchase the service. The amount of time a service requires equals the number of time credits earned or spent. For example, if you teach a member how to play the piano for one hour, you earn a one-hour time credit. If a member weeds your garden for an hour, you spend a one-hour time credit.
