A TEP ED Educator Ambassador is a high-profile position on campus for the educator who is the most passionate advocate and warrior fighting against eating disorders. ED Educator Ambassadors are dedicated to becoming the most knowledgeable resource, and to promoting the awareness and prevention of eating disorders at your school. More than 870,000 Texas youth have a prevalence of eating disorder behaviors, and every school needs a person on campus, on the front lines, who knows how to make early interventions for recovery. TEP ED Educator Ambassadors recognize and accept a vital role in fighting eating disorders through awareness, support and advocacy.
How it Works
TEP provides ED Educator Ambassadors with educational tools, on-going ED training, and social event ideas that can benefit their students, parents, faculty, administrators and community. ED Ambassadors become “campus experts” in eating disorders, and TEP is here to support and assist you along the way.
