What we do

The Decision Education Foundation's mission is to improve the lives of young people by empowering them with effective Decision Skills.

Our success is achieved through enabling those working with youth to learn, deliver, and sustain decision-making curriculum, activities, and environments for youth in a variety of educational settings.

DEF has been successful in demonstrating that Decision Skills can be taught, that they can improve academic performance, and that they are associated with improving life outcomes through impacting Decision Quality, a measure correlated with improved well-being.

Our courses and curriculum in Decision Quality are based around a framework for decision making pioneered at Stanford University's Department of Engineering and the Strategic Decisions Group, an international management consultancy.
