Beneficiaries

In 30 years, WITS has touched the lives of more than 300,000 people. WITS directly benefits more than 23,000 children and teachers each year. With a myriad of public performances and social media campaigns, the WITS program reached an extended audience of nearly 3.4 million people in the 2012-2013 school year. WITS primarily teaches children in schools, but also has programs in community classrooms and summer camps. In an effort to revolutionize the way writing is taught and indirectly benefit more children, WITS has expanded its professional development for teachers and its leadership of the WITS Alliance. The below infographic details WITS program beneficiaries, audience, and sustained growth over the past five years.
