Marc partnered with his cherished mentor, Oprah Winfrey, on many youth and development programs for over a decade.
He was honored to help stand up one of her signature programs - the O Ambassadors Program, by providing back-end support for the multi-million dollar program in partnership with Oprah’s Angel Network.
Based on the U.N. Millennium Development Goals, the school-based program connected 1 million North American youth in 2000 schools with their peers in developing countries. Over 65% of the participating schools were Title-1 schools.
The O Ambassadors groups raised money to support development projects for marginalized children in Kenya, Sri Lanka, Ecuador, Ghana, India and Sierra Leone. Groups of O Ambassadors travelled to Kenya to learn about local customs and culture, and the hardships endured by people their own age.
