CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Young men and women in Charlottesville are being armed with the tools they need to succeed as they move into adulthood, thanks to one central Virginia organization.

Get Busy 247 hosted a youth empowerment seminar at CitySpace Saturday afternoon. Attendees discussed self-identity, learned interview skills, and learned about history and current events of Charlottesville and Albemarle County.

“It’s just for me, it’s personal knowledge gap from the past to the present, with the intention of leading these youths into the future," Get Busy 247 Founder Devin Gentry said. "Because, when I say bridging the knowledge gap, that can mean among a lot of things, and we’re starting here with today for self identification and self awareness.”

Get Busy 247 is hosting a “Game Day,” event to encourage kids to get engaged offline next month.
