CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -

More than a dozen mentoring and tutoring agencies from around the Charlottesville area set up shop to recruit new volunteers Monday.

The United Way volunteer center held its sixth annual Mentor and Tutor Fair at the Omni Hotel Monday afternoon. The goal is get at least one or two long-term volunteers for each organization who will be a positive influence in a child's life.

“Agencies are really focusing this year on reaching out to people and working around schedules, so they're trying to make sure that people know that no matter what your schedule, what your work life is like, that you can really impact a child,” said Jessica Snyder.

The event is organized in coordination with National Mentoring Month. NBC29 was one of the fair's sponsors.
