Sarah Cronk is the founder of Generation Spirit, a national nonprofit that creates school-based spirit teams that bring together students with and without disabilities. Sarah started Generation Spirit as a sophomore in high school after seeing what a positive effect her brother Charlie (who is on the autism spectrum, and who often experienced life as an outsider) experienced when he was included on the high school swim team.
Today, as a motivational speaker, writer and leader of Generation Spirit, Sarah is passionate about helping young people develop a sense of personal empowerment through inclusion. Sarah’s work has been featured in People Magazine, The New York Times, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Dr. Oz Show, and HLN’s Morning Express with Robin Meade.
Sarah received a degree in Psychology from Whitman College in 2015 and a graduate certificate in Digital Leadership from MIT in 2017. She is currently based in Iowa City, Iowa.
