We offer eight-week, beginner-level improv classes at no cost to veterans, service members and military family members. Our improv courses provide veterans with a safe, constructive, and team-oriented environment to build valuable skills and express themselves. Oh yeah, and we typically end up laughing our butts off in the process. Our improv class culminates with a graduation show, where students invite family members and friends to support them as they take the stage for the first time! Upon graduation, alumni can participate in advanced-level improv courses through our partner improv schools. Finally, we host monthly improv jam sessions open to our alumni as well as all veterans, service members, military families, and caregivers who have intro-level improv experience. 


Upcoming Classes

Please note that we are implementing an ongoing Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) system throughout 2019. In order to participate in Operation Improv, all participants must complete a brief pre- and post-class assessment that measures the effects of ASAP's programming on skill-development and well-being. Your participation in our internal monitoring efforts will help us continuously learn from and improve our programs. If you have any questions about our M&E system, please do not hesitate to contact us at hello@asapasap.org.
