Welcome to Global Trailblazing | The Online Youth Club, where we unlock the digital doors to endless fun and connection around the world, which we want to open up to young carers.
We know that feelings of social isolation, loneliness and low self esteem are common amongst young carers along with limited peer interaction and a negative impact on mental and emotional wellbeing.
We believe that Global Trailblazing has the ability to be a online lifeline resource for young carers, that can help keep them connected to other children, open the doors to new friendships and connection whilst navigating the adult responsibilities they face at home.
While physical clubs may be out of their reach, our online club brings the trailblazing experience right to their fingertips and we would very much like to open a dialogue with you if you are connected to a young carers program about how we can work together.
I don’t need to tell you that there are many challenges faced by young caregivers and that many are unique to their own personal circumstances but what I have done is outlined a few below, and how I believe Global Trailblazing could help support them:
We know that caregivers often feel isolated, bearing immense responsibilities at a tender age. We know that the word loneliness is commonly express in research and discussions with young carers. These amzing young people may struggle to connect with peers who understand their unique circumstances. Global Trailblazing provides a virtual community where these young individuals can connect with like-minded peers worldwide, fostering friendships, support, and a sense of belonging that transcends geographical boundaries.
We know that juggling caregiving duties with personal growth and educational pursuits can be overwhelming for young caregivers and often the ability to attend in person clubs just isn’t possible for them. Our club offers an array of learning quests, badges, and live sessions that can be accessed from home and the club site is available 24/7 By participating in these engaging activities, young caregivers can continue their educational journey, acquire valuable skills, and experience personal development despite their caregiving responsibilities.
We know and understand that caring for others can take a toll on a young caregiver's emotional wellbeing. It is vital for them to have a safe space to express their emotions, and practice self-care. Global Trailblazing provides a supportive environment where they can share their experiences, access resources for emotional support, and engage in activities that promote self-care, resilience, and overall mental well-being.
As a club that is evolving we are also open to knew ways we can continue to support young carers through the club too.
We know that due to their caregiving roles, young caregivers may be unable to participate in traditional social activities and clubs. Global Trailblazing offers a virtual platform where they can actively engage in discussions, collaborative projects, and live sessions.
This opportunity for social interaction helps those feelings of isolation and promotes social skills development, offering a much-needed outlet for these young individuals to be just that, young individuals.
Integrating Global Trailblazing into existing support structures acknowledges the unique needs of young caregivers and demonstrates a comprehensive approach to their well-being. Our club acts as an additional resource, complementing the services provided by the government and associated departments, and offering a holistic support system tailored to the specific challenges faced by young caregivers.
Global Trailblazing empowers young caregivers to develop resilience, acquire new skills, and pursue personal growth despite their caregiving responsibilities. By incorporating our club into support programs, we can support you in providing these young individuals with an opportunity to thrive academically, emotionally, and socially, enhancing their future prospects.
Global Trailblazing's online nature ensures accessibility for young caregivers, regardless of their location or mobility constraints. By embracing our platform, you can bridge the digital divide and empower young caregivers with the digital skills and opportunities necessary for success in the modern world.
Our club is built upon the concept of learning through exploration and adventure. Young caregivers have the exciting opportunity to embark on trailblazing quests, where they can earn badges by completing challenges in our six core learning pillars: life skills, kindness and compassion, purpose, the world around us, innovation, and travel and adventure.
We believe in nurturing both the mind and body of our members. Global Trailblazing offers WEEKLY LIVE fitness and mindfulness sessions, promoting physical well-being and mental resilience.
Additionally, our monthly GT club workshops, provide students with a diverse range of topics to explore, from photography and first aid, to bicycle maintenance and singing.
By partnering with us, we can provide young caregivers with exciting and varied learning opportunities.
Our BASECAMP open club sessions are the highlight of our community. Every WEDNESDAY, members gather to engage in fun activities and showcase the work they have accomplished on their quests. This session fosters a sense of camaraderie, encourages creativity, and allows students to share their achievements with fellow trailblazers.
By partnering with us, we can provide young caregivers with a vibrant and inclusive space to connect, collaborate, and celebrate their accomplishments.
Global Trailblazing has developed our own unique social network exclusively for our club members that can be accesses anytime, anywhere!
This bespoke platform enables your caregivers to connect with like minded fellow Global Trailblazers from around the world.
They can chat, hang out, post status updates and even video call with their trailblazing buddies.

Global Trailblazing is not just about individual growth; we believe in making a positive impact on the world. Through our Global Trailblazing Foundation, we actively support disadvantaged children worldwide, fostering compassion and empathy among our members.
Young caregivers are heroes to us, and we already know just how compassionate they are.
We would love to talk to you about how we can work together to bring Global Trailblazing | The Online Youth Club to your young caregivers.
