SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young


Confident Voices is SAY's award-winning, after-school & weekend Creative Arts Program that empowers, emboldens, and inspires young people who stutter, ages 8-18.

Welcome to SAY’s Confident Voices 2023 Programming Season!

In this space, everyone has as much time as they need to speak. Participants are encouraged to be confident in their unique and powerful voices, and to express themselves freely as they connect with peers and collaborate on beautiful artistic creations – all in a safe and friendly environment where it is really, REALLY okay to stutter!

Fall 2022 Song & Spoken Word Project Share

Join us at the Fall 2022 Song & Spoken Word Project Share on Sunday, February 12th, 5 pm at Theater 555 in NYC.

This is the culminating show – where our brilliant Song & Spoken Word Project participants will SOAR as they share their songs written online and in person. These incredible performers will be accompanied by an all-star band led by Everett Bradley. We are overjoyed to have this unique opportunity to come together for the Song & Spoken Word Project Share in an Off-Broadway theater – and we can’t wait to see you there!

Confident Voices Storytelling

About Confident Voices

Every person who stutters has a story to tell and a voice that deserves to be heard.

At SAY, we believe the arts are for everybody. Our groundbreaking Confident Voices programming uses the arts to inspire creativity, confidence, and communication in young people who stutter. Confident Voices invites all kids and teens who stutter to work together and support each other as they explore different channels of expression and share what’s in their hearts and on their minds … with friends who understand their experiences.

SAY is committed to breaking down barriers to participation, so our Confident Voices programming is offered FREE of charge. 

Enjoy our 2022 'SAY Scroll' Highlights featuring advice & wisdom for young people who stutter from last season's Confident Voices grads!
