WITS Programs

The evidence-based WITS and WITS LEADS Programs bring together schools, families and communities to help elementary school children deal with bullying and peer victimization and encourage adults to respond to children’s requests for help.

WITS has two components: the WITS Primary Program (Kindergarten - Grade 3) and the WITS LEADS Program (Grades 4 - 6). Both programs use a literature-based curriculum, integrated with provincial and territorial learning objectives, to bring the WITS message into schools.

Almost all of the WITS Programs resources are available free-of-charge on this website. You can download the full resource guide, as well as individual lesson plans, complete online training, watch videos and print off posters and pamphlets.

More Information:
The WITS Programs can be used throughout an entire school year. Only the WITS Books and reminder gifts are not available free-of-charge. If your school requires financial assistance to cover the cost of WITS Books and reminder gifts, try contacting local service clubs or businesses, such as grocery stores or banks, for support. The Rock Solid Foundation has also been successful in assisting schools with fundraising efforts. Contact Rock Solid at to learn more about fundraising initiatives, grants, and sources of potential funding in your community.
