Back to School Youth Jam

The party's almost over, so they're throwing a party, the "Back to School Youth Jam" at the Savannah Civic Center. Since summer vacation's just about done, this event's to get kids in the right frame of mind to go back to school.

It wasn't just fun and games, but workshops covering self-esteem and money management.

"The students need to realize where they are coming from and what they're doing, and to make sure they're doing something positive with their lives instead of something stupid," said high school freshman Rodney Hughes.

They also had information to help teens get jobs, and some games and prizes.
