A Time Exchange for Missoula and the surrounding communities!
From Arlee to Hamilton and Alberton to Potomac
The Missoula Time Bank is a service exchange which uses time rather than money. Members provide services for other members. Members earn time hours, and spend them on the services they need... All skills are valued equally!

From Missoula Time Bank Members:
- "Exchanging is just plain fun! Each time I participate, I get to know another member just a little better. I'm making new friends and feeling community-connected in the process of providing and receiving. It's a win-win!" MTB member: Susan S.
- "The Missoula Time Bank has been a fun way to try out new things, such as weaving. In two hours I got an excellent introduction to the craft and a chance to determine whether it is something I might want to explore further - without investing a lot of money or time upfront by taking a class or buying equipment." MTB member: Ariel B.
