Both A Request & Offer

Computer Skills Sharing
Are you interested in sharing a computer skill with others or learning a new skill? "One on One" is a new Community Computer Skills Coaching Program at the Rainier Library, a member organization of our time bank.

Volunteer at the Rainier Library and team up with Rainier School teens to work one-on-one with community members in our library during regular open hours.

This is a perfect opportunity for all participants to both teach and learn! You don't need to be an expert to be a computer coach. If you are good with email, YOU can help a new beginner! If you need more skills, someone can help you.

You can use your timebank hours to learn a new computer skill and receive timebank hours by sharing a skill you know with someone else.

Stop by the Rainier Library (located in the Old Historic School House) or Call: (360) 446-4800 or Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Go Green Brainstorming for business
The NW Eco-Building Guild Members will provide Eco-charette services to help businesses become more ecologically and socially sustainable. 2-3 Guild Members join with your business team for a 2-3 hour session to brainstorm and evaluate ideas for helping your business “Go Green.” This can also apply to construction projects as a precursor to an integrated design process, in which case architects, designers, and contractors give an hour of time to consult on your project, with an understanding that if and when you seek bids for the work, they will have a chance to offer one.
Contact Chris vanDaalen 360-789-9669.

Resources & workshops available
As an organization, we can provide H4H members access to trainings, workshops, conferences, and eco-charette services for businesses wanting “focus group” support for making their businesses as ecologically and socially responsible as possible. We can also provide public speakers for others events knowledgeable about any aspect of green building.

See some of the resources & workshops we have available at http://www.EcoBuilding.org

EcoBuilding Guild members will be invited to join the Time Bank and offer their professional services, or other services, at their discretion. If you see someone you'd like to work with, invite them to join, and share your positive experiences.

Note: Percentage of H4H hours we can take for services or classes the EcoBuilding Guild coordinate will vary, as our speaker arrangements vary with the parties involved.
