Earn Time Credit for Teaching Freeskool Classes

Ithaca Freeskool is happy to announce that Freeskool teachers can earn time credits for teaching classes! How cool!

What is a time credit? you ask. Check out Tompkins Time Traders – As a member of Tompkins Time Traders you can be rewarded for doing what you love. An hour of everyone’s time is equal. By helping a neighbor you receive a time credit (TC) for each hour of your service or skill. In exchange, you can use the TCs you’ve accrued in the time bank for services offered by another member.

As a Freeskool teacher you can get time credits from your students. Become a member and tell your students about it,!1234061_239492402869049_1286576426_n If they become members they can give you credits. After you’ve taught a class you can log your hours and receive your TCs. Credit can be used for anything offered by other members. Services include things like computer help, house cleaning, car rental, child care, massage, and even dentistry.

Thanks Time Traders!

Freeskool – Be An Organizer Meet

Who: Your Freeskool Organizers

When: 10/23 6:30 pm

Where: Crow’s Nest Cafe above Autumn Leaves Bookstore in Commons

Come be part of the behind-the-scenes of Freeskool. We’re looking for organizers to help find teachers, make art, distribute calendars and all the other Freeskool goings-on. Being part of the team means getting to know the community, learning programs like InDesign, making posters, being creative and radical. Come get a sense of what it’s all about. Can’t make the date? Get in touch and we can figure something out.

Joe’s Alternate Tennis Universe!

Freeskool classes are underway and here is a highlight. Joe’s Alternate Tennis Universe brought together tennis players of different abilities and gave them some tips and practice. Joe gave instruction and hopes the students will continue to meet on their own after class is over. If you’re interested in getting in on the action, get in touch with Freeskool organizers.

Got photos or stories about your Freeskool class? Send them in! Do it.
