An Invitation to Arroyo S.E.C.O. Timebank Members
Participate in a Study from June to September Located in Echo Park, LA, run by PARC Inc., Penn State University and Carnegie Mellon University Funded by the National Science Foundation. In partnership with hOurworld & St. Barnabas Senior Services.
We are a team of non-local scientists developing a new peer-to-peer matching service, NeighborGenie, to work with hOurworld timebanking, which will recommend people to each other based on convenience, choosing the people best placed to help out.
No more waiting around for someone to see your offer or request; we recommend providers to requestors automatically.
We are conducting a field evaluation focused on finding assistance for seniors aging in place who need help with simple transportation-centered tasks (rides and deliveries). However...
Anyone can use NeighborGenie for ride and delivery offers and requests in the timebank. But science shows that volunteering makes you happier, healthier and longer lived. So why not enjoy these benefits while helping local seniors?
As well as installing the NeighborGenie app, timebankers who participate will download the Aware app for iPhone or Android to build a travel prediction profile. This will allow you to be recommended if you will be in the right place at the right time to offer help when needed. For example, if someone needs dry cleaning picked up, the one who regularly goes nearest the dry cleaner and the requestor’s home would be offered this task.
If interested in in participating you must:

The Arroyo S.E.C.O. Network of Time Banks' Peace and Safety Committee has been partnering with Mariposa Prison and Parole Ministry since spring, 2014. This project requires no adherence to any faith whatsoever. Some of the inmates do, in fact, experience themselves as remote members of the church; if they write about spiritual matters, we direct the letters to the ministerial staff. A significant focus of the letters is simply human-to-human contact, as well as exchanges of information about release dates and the shipments of dress-outs (a set of clothes and shoes that Mariposa will send, to spare inmates having to reenter society in easily-recognizable prison-issued garb and c.a.r.d.b.o.a.r.d. shoes—at the inmate’s expense). This is not an easy something to do, but it is tremendously rewarding.
Saturday, July 15th, 2017 from 2:30-4:30PM
