As a program of The Grapevine Family & Community Resource Center, Avenue A is a Teen Center offering after school and evening enrichment programs for rural New Hampshire teens in 5th thru 12th grade. We are located at 42 Main Street in Antrim.
From Pick-Up Basketball to Creative Writing Clubs, our programs encourage social development, healthy living, and creative expression!
Our space is also a community gathering place for groups like AA (meeting Sundays at 6pm) and Al-Anon (Wednesdays at 6pm). It is available to rent as well.

Involvement with the Community
Avenue A is not limited to the brick and mortar space of 42 Main Street. We are involved with all kinds of groups who are looking to make a difference in the community. Avenue A is a part of Monadnock Community Hospital’s Be The Change substance misuse and behavioral health task force and the HOPE Committee (Antrim’s substance misuse and prevention committee) Avenue A also collaborates with groups that also value child development and community building, such as Great Brook School, Antrim’s Brown Bag Coalition and Monadnock Roller Derby. Please contact us if you would like to discuss your community group working with Avenue A.
We are always looking for volunteers from the community to chaperone our open hours and to help with various clubs and initiatives. Volunteers are required to have a background check completed, with the cost covered by The Grapevine.
A special thank you goes out to the towns of Antrim, Bennington and Hancock for generously providing direct funding to Avenue A. We could not exist without you! A hearty thanks to Rick Fitzgerald, who organized the Heard It Through The Grapevine open mic night, and to all of our volunteers and community members who donate time and dollars, so that Avenue A can exist.
