About Us

                Our Vision: Better decisions lead to better lives and a better society.

                Our Mission:  Improving lives by empowering students to be better decision-makers in the modern world.

Founded in 2014, How I Decide is an educational nonprofit dedicated to ensuring students are equipped to be better decision-makers in the modern world and throughout their lives. How I Decide is bringing together education and industry leaders, academics and researchers, policymakers and parents to create a national education movement that empowers teachers, school administrators and policymakers to institute Decision Education as a critical component of a modern education system.

What is Decision Education?

Decision Education empowers students to be better decision-makers in school and in life. By focusing on dispositions, knowledge, and skills related to high-quality decision making—self-direction, self-awareness, self-regulation, probabilistic thinking, and decision trap avoidance—we can teach lifelong decision-making skills that can improve their lives.
