The Arch Street teen center has a new addition; the Greenwich Grind coffee shop is now open Wednesday through Saturday afternoons for teens in town.  

"We had the idea of offering a coffee house that also offered after school activities. We wanted an environment where teens could come after school, and could also be involved in a healthy after school activity," said Kyle Silver, the Arch Street Executive Director. 

The center currently offers yoga, hip hop dancing, and culinary classes, and is looking to add more activities. 

"We are looking at a possible podcast, we are looking at bringing in films that are educational and fun at the same time. We are collaborating with a lot of the nonprofits," said Silver. 

The Greenwich Grind has collaborated with the community in many ways already, beginning with the name. 

"We had a contest, and we took entries for the name of the coffee house. We had hundreds of entries, then narrowed it down to 10. We put those out to vote to the teen population. We had thousands of votes on those. We ended up with the Greenwich Grind," said Silver. 

"I was on my phone one night and clicked on the link. I rattled off a list of names and Greenwich Grind happened to be one of them," said one of the three winners Caleb Osemovor. 

The Greenwich Grind is located at 100 Arch Street. For more information, visit  www.archstreet.org.
