Growing a Sharing Economy through Reciprocity.


A date has been set to go live on the new software package, "Hourworld."


Be prepared! Please access the test system NOW at www.hourworld.org. When you see the Home screen, even before logging in,  hover over the “SOFTWARE” tab and click to watch two short informative videos: “MEMBER SIDE” and if you are interested,  “BRIEF HISTORY”.

Then to try the system out: Click on the tab “MEMBER LOGIN". Go ahead and enter the email you use in Community Weaver and any password. (If you don't remember your CW email, go to the current CW system and look up your profile; Hourworld does not know your password, so you will be sent a new temporary one.) Use the temporary password to login, and you will be asked to Accept the Terms of Use; go ahead and Accept, and you will get the Welcome page.

Try it out. Check out your own record, your offers and requests. Play around, you can't hurt anything because it's only the test system. Currently, this test system will have data as of September 1. The final download with all the latest data will happen on October 31. If you have any questions, contact John at wingler.john@gmail.com.


We are an interconnected community of people who help each other by sharing our abilities, talents and experiences. By both giving and receiving, we learn to appreciate the value of each and every member and also come to believe in the value of our own contributions. When you provide a service for another member you earn one time credit for each hour you spend providing the service. You can then exchange each time credit you earn for an hour of service from someone else. Instead of separating our community into those who need and those who provide, we recognize that we all have needs and gifts to share.

How to Join the Arroyo SECO Network of Time Banks

The Core Values of Time Banking

  1. Assets. We are all assets. Every human being has something to contribute.
  2. Redefining Work. Some work is beyond price. Work has to be redefined to value whatever it takes to raise healthy children, build strong families, revitalize neighborhoods, make democracy work, advance social justice, make the planet sustainable. That kind of work needs to be honored, recorded and rewarded.
  3. Reciprocity. Helping works better as a two-way street. The question: “How can I help you?” needs to change so we ask: “How can we help each other build the world we both will live in?”
  4. Social Networks. We need each other. Networks are stronger than individuals. People helping each other reweave communities of support, strength & trust. Community is built upon sinking roots, building trust, creating networks. Special relationships are built on commitment.
  5. Respect. Every human being matters. Respect underlies freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and everything we value. Respect supplies the heart and soul of democracy. When respect is denied to anyone, we all are injured. We must respect where people are in the moment, not where we hope they will be in the future.
