What is GoGoNews?

GoGoNews was born out of a desire to inform children of the world around them in an educational and non-threatening way. Since its inception in 2006, GoGoNews has provided children with general knowledge, as well as a consciousness and awareness of the world, regardless of geography or culture.

GoGoNews has always operated with the singular mission to educate, expose and entertain the little minds in our lives - one day at a time. GoGoNews also provides parents and educators with subject matter to start a conversation with children and a safe means by which to deal with the harsh realities of the world we live in.

Most importantly, GoGoNews is fun!


Why Do You GoGo?

Children are curious and interested in the world around them. GoGoNews believes in satisfying and encouraging this curiosity by publishing real news stories that are not only relevant to them, but also capture the silly and the serious goings on in the world today. Firsthand feedback from children reinforces the fact that GoGoNews is engaging children, teaching children, and adding something to their sphere of learning:

“GoGo is fun. We use it in our English class.”
Jenny, age 8

 “I love GoGoNews because I learn something new every day! I’ve told all my friends about it and they love it too.”
Michael age 11
