What We Do
As the only Teen Center in the Monadnock Region, Avenue A is a program of The Grapevine Family & Community Resource Center. We partner with rural teens age 11-19 to build resilience, navigate challenging circumstances, and develop young leaders. With the support of over 60 volunteers, we run year-round afternoon and evening enrichment programs for teens. Learn more about our approach to youth work HERE.
Who We Serve
300 teens from 18 towns participate in Avenue A—coming from across the ConVal School District and surrounding towns including New Ipswich, Wilton, Stoddard, Nelson, and Deering. Our programs are offered at no cost, removing barriers to participation for teens we serve.
Our community enthusiastically embraces our unique model for supporting youth. We see this in our robust program participation, in the 22 organizations that partner with us, and in our incredible volunteers who are dedicated to supporting teens.
Avenue A welcomes youth of all abilities, including those with chronic illnesses, physical disabilities, neurodivergence, and mental health challenges. We celebrate the unique identity of every teen!
