Over the past decade reports on bullying amongst America's youth have been steadily on the increase. In 2008, Marc Wilkes decided to tackle the problem head on. He started a school assembly program in Lakeland, Florida called "OMEGAMAN & FRIENDS." Marc developed this assembly program based around his alter-ego "OmegaMan," a superhero who represents the final word on bullying using the acronym H.E.R.O. ; Helping Everyone Respect Others. The design of the program is to tackle issues that face young people head on. OmegaMan & Friends travel around the country combating issues such as bullying, drug and alcohol abuse, peer pressure, obesity and others.
Marc's mission is to help our young people with a genuine message, teaching them to exercise positive behaviors early on in life. Through his alter-ego "OmegaMan," Marc is able to present a fun, action packed, school assembly that really helps young people focus on, and more importantly, remember what it means to be helpful to others and show respect towards all. Marc uses his superhero persona to perform feats of strength and get students involved in his anti-bullying message. Omegaman has one goal in mind, to stamp out bullying in our schools and amongst our youth.
