Our Story

Sarah Greichen didn’t intend to become an activist for inclusion when she conceived the foundation for Score A Friend at age 13; she wanted her twin brother, who has an autism spectrum disorder, to have the same opportunities she enjoyed as a teenager in school. She began a mission to ensure her brother – and students of all abilities – could build friendships and experience authentic inclusion at school and in communities. By 2015, Score A Friend emerged confidently to build inclusive schools across the United States. Its model fosters the development of youth leaders ready to lead the formation of Inclusive Clubs at their schools and spur the creation of inclusive schools and communities. With each club activated, Score A Friend moves closer to creating a more inclusive world.
