Youth & Elders Program Feature Story- Swigert International School at Balfour Stapleton

We are so pleased to have begun our partnerships with both Balfour at Stapleton and Swigert International School this past year! The ongoing visits from elementary friends bring smiles to the faces of all the Balfour elders.  Each week a new group from the school arrives ready to spread joy.

Swigert International School, like several of our other campuses, has made a unique commitment to allowing each of their students to visit the Balfour at Stapleton. We began with visits from 5th graders in the fall, 4th graders in the winter, and now, 3rd graders for the spring.

The elders at Balfour look forward to sharing their stories each week, and laughter abounds among the youth and elders.  Our Bessie’s Hope team is so proud to see happiness emanating from the elders, compassion gained by students, and the bond built by the two during each visit.
