ROANOKE (WSLS10)-- Young professionals in the Roanoke Valley are teaming up with local nonprofits for a Nonprofit Board Fair.

It's a chance for these young leaders to learn more about organizations in the area and how they can give back in a professional volunteer role. Events like this give people the opportunity to serve as a board member and help make a big impact locally.

"I enjoy meeting other people in the community that have similar interests and passions as me," says volunteer Candice Dawson. "I enjoy the time that I spend with those people and what I get to do for the community. I like to give back and that gets me excited."

Tonight's event kicks off at 6 p.m. at Billy's Restaurant in Downtown Roanoke. Click here to register.
