Mission, Vision, and ASAP!
To foster creative, hands-on learning through the arts: ASAP!
When we honor children’s imagination, invite them to create, encourage them to take risks, and trust their resourcefulness, they will become the empowered and resilient adults the world really needs.
Founded in 1999, ASAP! is a social profit organization recognized as the place for quality and innovative arts education year round offering literary, performing, visual, and culinary programs for pre-k through adult. The ASAP! community includes families and children of diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds from over 100 towns. We reach 8,000+ children a year from all walks of life throughout Connecticut. Our program impacts kids by exposing them to experiential learning opportunities that encourage them to think creatively, ask questions, and explore possibilities. Since our inception ASAP! has given nearly half a million dollars in financial aid to families in need. ASAP! never turns a child away.
