timeBanking/Lamoni Core Values
Time banks are built on the premise of five Core Values.
Assets - We are all assets. We all have something to give.
Redefining Work - Some work is beyond price. timeBanking/Lamoni values whatever it takes to raise healthy children, build strong families, revitalize neighborhoods, advance social justice, and make the planet sustainable. These challenges need to be acknowledged and rewarded.
Reciprocity - Helping works better as a two-way street. The question, “How can I help you?” needs to change to “How can we help each other build the world we both live in?”
Social Networks - We need each other. Networks are stronger than individuals. Special relationships are built on commitment.
Respect - Every human being matters. We must respect where people are in the moment, not where we hope they will be at some future point.
