Armed Services Arts Partnership (ASAP)

The Armed Services Arts Partnership (ASAP) empowers veterans, service members, and military family members to thrive in their communities through arts classes, performances, and partnerships.

ASAP focuses on promoting artistic expression, skill-development, and camaraderie through six- to twelve-week classes in stand-up comedy, improv, and creative writing. ASAP then partners with local colleges, arts organizations, and performance venues to offer its graduates continuous opportunities for artistic and personal growth. In the process, ASAP provides participants with transferable life skills, a renewed sense of purpose and identity, and healing benefits, and leverages the arts to strengthen ties between veterans and their communities.
