I came across this colloquial phrase: "the young go getters". What does that actually mean? Does it refer to a young child/adolescent who is supposed to be a creative thinker?
A go-getter is someone with energy and drive, who really goes after what they want. They are prepared to work hard to achieve their goals. You don't have to be young to be a go-getter, but I guess it's something more associated with young people, ie. people who are on the way up career/success-wise.
If Joe wants something, he goes and gets it. Joe is a go-getter.
A go-getter is hardworking and ambitious. Young is not typically associated with the idiom: it's just a modifier in that sentence.
