CHARLOTTE, N.C.-- The United Way is looking for a few good volunteers. The organization has set a goal of recruiting, placing and training one thousand volunteers to be mentors and tutors for at-risk children in the Charlotte area. The initiative is called Project 1000 and United Way of Central Carolinas is hoping to reach that goal soon.

The top two volunteers, Phoebe Levine and Angela Glass, explained the training and program to NBC Charlotte's Dianne Gallagher in the video above.

If you are interested in participating in Project 1000 visit the United Way of Central Carolinas site or call 704.371.6255.
