YouTube Groups was a feature that gave YouTube users a place to come together and share videos and discussions about common interests. However, the YouTube Groups feature has been discontinued for several years, and hasn't yet been replaced with a similar feature. 

If you are looking to communicate with a specific YouTube user, enter the user's name in the YouTube search field. Click on the linked name under any of the user's videos to go to that person's channel. You may find contact information under the About tab there.
