SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young


A Special Message from Confident Voices

Get ready…Confident Voices is coming BACK this fall! We’re over the moon to have the opportunity to continue to connect and create with young people who stutter. Stay tuned for more details, or contact to inquire!

To do our part for the health and safety of our staff, the amazing young people we serve, and our fellow human beings, SAY has temporarily suspended in-person programming.

But SAY is still here! This unprecedented time of uncertainty calls for MORE support, connection, and love, and SAY remains 100% committed to staying present for you. We will not now, nor will we ever stop providing the invaluable programming, encouragement, and friendship that our SAY community relies on.

Please feel free to contact our Confident Voices team with any questions. Meanwhile, remember to visit the Confident Voices Blog to catch all the fun from last season!

The Songwriting Project 

The Songwriting Project is an 8-week program in which young people who stutter work in small groups with accomplished professional songwriters who guide them in the process of turning their ideas into original songs. SAY’s Music Director, Everett Bradley, then arranges the songs for a live band and everyone has the opportunity to perform at the legendary Joe’s Pub! And as always, there is NO PRESSURE to perform.

Why Songs? For many people who stutter, singing and rapping can free their voice in ways that speaking sometimes can’t. Singing engages our brains and our voices in a different and exciting way!
