SAY: DC programs leverage the power of listening, art-making, and community to open up new worlds of possibility for each participant. For eighteen years, the SAY approach has been based on the belief that each young person has an important story to tell and also possesses the ability to share it with the world in a unique and powerful way.
At SAY, we believe the arts are for everybody. You don’t have to identify as an artist to experience the transformative power of making and enjoying art. Here, young people can feel free to explore new modes of expression in a safe and supported context. At the forefront is our trust in the power of listening and the inner strength that comes from nurturing supportive friendships. When you know your friends truly understand and empathize with you and have your back, you can do anything.
We also know the importance of parents having their own friends and peers who understand the ups and downs of raising kids who stutter. It is hugely beneficial to get to know and share with other families who are on a similar journey. Normalizing the experiences of parents of young people who stutter contributes to the overall well-being of the entire family.
