Our Story

Inspired by the teachings  and philosphy of the trailblazing Edgar S. Cahn and an unforgettable meeting, Jerome answered the call to action when the meeting ended in Dr. Cahn’s challenge 

“Do Something.”  

 

We are working to create sustainable change via positive youth and community development. Starting with small pilot projects, Youth TimeBanking was born in New Jersey in 2019.  Since then, YTB Global has expanded from New Jersey to Florida, Connecticut, Alaska.   Africa became the first international link, and the networks continue to grow.

 

YTB Global projects have improved the experiences of youth and inspired other professionals to employ these common sense methods of integration, value, and community engagement.

 

YTB Global honors the late Dr. Cahn with the belief in the value of all members of our vast and varied society.   Dr. Cahn’s words resonate in all we do:

 

"And so, all that we have, in the here and now,

is our love for each other,

our willingness to forgive each other,

our willingness to come to each other's rescue, and our unwillingness to stand by silent or passive

in the face of injustice. …”
