We’re catalyzing the field of critical thinking and decision making for youth to ensure they learn to make better ones.

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. We synthesize insights from disciplines ranging from mindful awareness to neuroscience to improve life outcomes for youth.  Our resources and experience creating instructional content puts us in a unique position to energize a movement to make improving decision skills a core objective of the learning experience of every student.

Goals For Youth


In all of our efforts, we are committed to measuring our impact and modifying our approach accordingly. Methods for capturing both quantitative and qualitative data are incorporated into the initial design of every project we engage in.
