Regional Office

Help us raise a generation of kids who think critically, act responsibly, and interact positively in the digital world.

As the world's tech capital, the Bay Area is central to our partnerships not only with the industry but also with public and private schools and community groups. Common Sense is headquartered in San Francisco, and our local fundraising efforts support the research, development, and implementation of our education programs and our nationally representative research reports. We have an advisory council in San Francisco representing the North Bay and a Silicon Valley council covering the South Bay.
