The WITS Programs bring together schools, families and communities to create responsive environments that help elementary school children deal with bullying and peer victimization. WITS Programs address curriculum requirements of inclusion and acceptance in a cost-effective model that involves schools and local partners. We started 20 years ago in Victoria, BC and are now a Canadian charity positively affecting children in every province and territory. In a 2016 report from Dalhousie University, WITS was judged to be the best program of its kind in Canada. Join us!
Our Vision is that all children are living, learning and playing in safe and responsive communities.
Our Mission is to create capacity in communities to promote safety & healthy relationships.
WITS is a program that provides essential support to staff and students in the school setting.

New Books and Lesson Plans
Moving is hard. Everything’s new at home and at school, you’re nervous, you don’t know where you fit in, and not everyone is nice. This beautifully illustrated wordless story shows how one person can make a difference and change tears to smiles. But someone is still left out! See if you can find him on each page.
