Bethel College Connection

“We are sowing the seeds of understanding regarding what each generation has to offer the other.” —Beth Penner, Kidron Associate Director of Independent Living

Bluestem Communities is an avid supporter of intergenerational relationships. Residents have regular interactions with young children, high school students and college students.

Abundant relationships form between college students and Kidron residents every day. With Bethel College right next to our community, the opportunities for connections are endless, including volunteering, tutoring, clinical experience and internships.

Life Enrichment: Every fall and spring, Bethel College hosts Life Enrichment. The Life Enrichment series is planned especially for adults ages 60 and over and is made possible by funding from Bethel College and the generosity of speakers who share their talent and expertise without compensation. The Kidron Bethel Village bus provides transportation to Life Enrichment.

Bethel College Activity Pass: These passes are purchased with resident service fees and may be used for admission to the Life Enrichment series for seniors, sporting events, and dramas and musicals at the college. Kidron Inc. residents are invited to attend any of these events and pay admission charges.
