Celebrate the voices of youth living with serious illnesses and let them know that their stories matter!
Hear Your Song is a national nonprofit co-founded by Yale undergraduates in 2014 with the mission of empowering children and teens with serious illnesses and complex health needs to make their voices heard through collaborative songwriting. Since the start of the pandemic, Hear Your Song has expanded to serve kids around the country and beyond, helping over 250 kids write songs about anything they want in any style they imagine, from rock anthems about loving pasta to jazz tunes about living with epilepsy.
At this virtual event, you'll have the opportunity to give feedback to our youth songwriters through written, audio, and video messages that let kids know their songs and stories have been heard! You'll also be able to learn more about Hear Your Song's Yale-driven history, from our founders to our current undergraduate volunteer community to our Programs Fellows supported by the Yale Glee Club Associates.
This is a family-friendly event, too — kids ages 6 and up are more than welcome to participate and explore the songs!
