Blogs GY is a Guyanese website which aims to offer up a unified umbrella by which youngsters can reach to their literary capabilities and lay out their viewpoints for the worldwide web to engage.

One of the hardest things for youth and youth workers is keeping up with the latest trends of whatever is going on. That is an area where this website excels at. It offers all the latest news and developments on the latest trends in youth. It is a good way for youth to feel included and an even better way for youth workers to understand the kids, even if it’s just a little more. And you know it is geared towards today’s youth because it uses the term “millennials”, a term that often elicits eye rolls, but if you work with kids then it is a necessary evil.
The only UK based website, this site is geared mostly towards people who work with youth, but that doesn’t make it any less informative.

This website is good for venting or just going on to learn. Because lets face it, it’s best to learn how to get through a problem by reading about someone who has been there and experienced it.
