Scrabble is a fantastic educational tool masked by fun and competition. The benefits of Scrabble include increased vocabulary, spelling and math skills as well as critical thinking skills, teamwork and sportsmanship. Through ASAP Scrabble clubs, students interact with dedicated mentors and a positive group of like-minded peers while building their skills. ASAP provides training, materials, placement assistance for volunteers, and ongoing support for volunteers and site partners. Scrabble trainings are held throughout the school year and are instructed by John Green, a member of the Philadelphia Scrabble Club and the National Scrabble Association, and an ASAP Scrabble club leader himself.
