Armed Services Arts Partnership (ASAP)
The Armed Services Arts Partnership (ASAP) helps veterans and military families reintegrate into their communities through the arts. ASAP promotes artistic expression, skill-development, and camaraderie through seven- to ten-week classes in stand-up comedy, improv, creative writing, and music. 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 healing benefits, and strengthens ties between veterans and their communities through the arts.
