About Us

Founded in 2014, How I Decide is an educational nonprofit 501(c)(3) based in Philadelphia.  Our team is composed of academics, educators, and business professionals, and our instructional content synthesizes insights from multiple disciplines ranging from mindfulness to neuroscience to the behavioral sciences.  We currently focus on 1,500 students in urban, disadvantaged communities locally, and we have plans to scale our work nationally.
