How I Decide equips youth with skills to be better decision makers throughout their lives. Rather than telling youth what to decide, we teach them how to think clearly to make their own decisions. We create innovative programs and instructional content to develop students’ critical thinking, social, and emotional skills. In addition, we support research to develop new products, interventions, and instructional methods, and advocate for change in what students are taught.
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 students in urban, disadvantaged communities locally, and we have plans to scale our work nationally. This school year, we have reached approximately 1,000 students with about a dozen partners, and we see enormous opportunity to scale in the next few years.

Whether you are a seeker, churchgoer, or just someone trying to figure out who this Jesus is, you are in good company. The Church of Saint Asaph is a house of prayer for all people and a community that works to be progressive in belief and inclusive in practice. We offer the message of Christianity to those who sometimes find organized religion ineffectual, irrelevant, or repressive. We see our faith as an agent of justice and peace. We are a community that embraces search, not certainty. We believe faith is a process, not a destination. While we are deeply involved in the Anglican (Episcopal) tradition, we are also committed to the diverse and rich theology and worship of the Christian church worldwide and historical. We draw on elements from many different Christian traditions including Anglican, Orthodox, Catholic, Lutheran and others. We desire to be a community where questions are encouraged, where you will not be handed a checklist for orthodoxy, where ambiguity is not the enemy of faith but its partner. You may occasionally be led to suspend your intellect. But you will not be required to sacrifice it.
