Click Join to create a new member account. You will receive a notification email within a few minutes. After you have confirmed your email address by clicking on the link in the notification, start your member profile. Essential steps are to agree to the Terms of Service and provide your Neighborhood. (If you do not see your town on the Neighborhood list, please select Other.) A Coordinator will let you know when your membership is approved, usually within a day or two. You will then have member access to the White River Time Exchange.
Please note: Community members under the age of 16 can join the White River Time Exchange, but a trusted adult must act as their “Guardian Angel.” This means that the adult will be responsible for creating the profile, posting Offers and Requests, and recording Exchanges.
Please note: If you do not have an email address, the Coordinator or another WRTE member of your choice can act as your “Guardian Angel.” Your Guardian Angel will be responsible for creating your profile, posting Offers and Requests, and recording Exchanges on your behalf.

Ongoing Use of the Time Exchange
Respond to an offer or request. This is exactly how new sharing and relationships are built to strengthen our community.
Please respond in a timely manner to calls or emails you receive from your neighbors about the requests or offers you've posted.
After you have communicated with a neighbor and determined that a service exchange is appropriate, make specific arrangements (date and time) for the exchange.
Fulfill the exchange and save a record of it in your hours account.
Come back and review offers and requests from other members.
Do this again and again to help keep our community alive and flourishing.
