Common Sense Media   

Most technology wasn’t built with kids in mind. We’re on a mission to change that.

We believe in media that inspires and entertains families of all kinds. In technology that protects privacy and supports communities. In learning tools that prepare students and teachers for success in a connected world. Discover how we’re working to make the digital world better for kids and families.

Novus Project     

The Novus Project is a community dedicated to preventing the relationally damaging effects of media misuse and explicit material by engaging students, families and schools through awareness, tools, and support.

By reaching the public school and collegiate systems with The Novus Project Program and resources in development, we can expose the truth about the consequences of media misuse and explicit material upon an individual’s brain and the damaging effects it produces in relationships, personal health and society at large.

The bottom line is that many students are struggling with this issue and feel as if they have nowhere to go for help.
