The WITS Programs bring together schools, families and communities to create safe responsive environments that help elementary school children deal with bullying and peer victimization. We started 20 years ago in Victoria, BC and are now 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.
