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 2022/2023 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 ‚Äď all in a safe and friendly environment where¬†it is really, REALLY okay to stutter!

This fall, we are excited to continue our award-winning creative arts programming Online AND In-Person for kids & teens who stutter, ages 8-18, in NYC, the Tri-state area & BEYOND!

The Song & Spoken Word Project:

Combining our wildly successful Songwriting Project and Spoken Word Project, The Song & Spoken Word Project is our brand-new, 8-week program that invites young people who stutter to come together to connect and collaborate on original songs and spoken word poems to share their thoughts, feelings, and boundless imaginations!
