What is the #FlipTheSwitch campaign?

Our goal is to create a world where children are safe and abuse is not tolerated. With education and action, we can make it happen.

Sexual abuse is something that needs to be discussed openly. I hope adults become educated and we can work together to prevent it.

The #FlipTheSwitch campaign was inspired by the many people who voiced concern to Aly about the lack of support and attention being devoted to the issue of sexual abuse. While Aly’s experience was within the sport of gymnastics, she recognizes that children in all sports need to be protected from abuse.

#FlipTheSwitch calls for all adults involved in youth sports to complete Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children®training, the leading child sexual abuse prevention program in the country.

90% of children who are abused are abused by someone they know and trust.

Aly invites you to join the effort to make sports safer by completing Stewards of Children®.

Let's Get Trained

Darkness to Light's Stewards of Children® uses real people and real stories to show you how to protect children from sexual abuse.

You'll meet survivors who lived through child sexual abuse, experienced its immediate and long-term effects, and ultimately were able to find healing. You’ll meet experts who work with children and families, and confront abuse on a daily basis. Many of these survivors and experts are also parents themselves.
