Youth TimeBanking - Connection is Protection
In this episode we speak with Jerome Scriptunas who leads a community nonprofit called Youth TimeBanking (YTB) and a TechSoup Connect chapter for timebanking and community organizations. Youths need more opportunities to practice skills needed full-time in adulthood. Youth TimeBanking provides community-building opportunities to youth and uses time, service, resources, and opportunity as currency in exchange. Jerome shares his thoughts on YTB’s vision that youths have opportunities for peer-to-peer, near-peer, youth-adult, and intergenerational connections and partnerships to build personal and community strength and solidarity.
