The Alliance for Decision Education (“the Alliance”) is a nonprofit organization that is driving a revolutionary shift in the way that we think about education. Our mission is to improve lives by empowering students with essential skills and dispositions for making better decisions. We are driven by this mission, supported by science, and backed by a growing list of global luminaries and leaders.

The decisions we make shape our lives and those of the people around us. There is no more important set of skills that we can teach today’s youth than how to approach decision-making.

The Alliance is committed to an inclusive, supportive, and collaborative culture. Our team is made up of diverse, dedicated, and driven educators, researchers, subject matter experts, and other professionals who have come from different backgrounds for a common purpose. We are proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer.


The Alliance offers a comprehensive total rewards package inclusive of competitive compensation that is commensurate with experience, generous Paid Time Off (PTO), an Employee Assistance Program, and employer-paid medical, vision, dental, life, and disability insurance. Employees may also contribute to a Flexible Spending Account and a 401(k) plan with a dollar-for-dollar match up to 5%. Employees receive equipment and supplies to work remotely as well as additional resources to help them do their best work.
