  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$200 - $1500 per event
Marlon was born and raised on the Southside of Chicago in the Englewood area. Never one to let his environment dictate his future, he attended Northern Illinois University (NIU). Marlon received his Master's Degree in Adult & Higher Education and a Bachelor's of Arts in Liberal Studies from NIU. Currently, Marlon is a Doctoral student in the Educational Leadership program at Roosevelt University.

Marlon's life's mission is to be a positive source of change in the lives of young people, in particular young minority men. His professional resume is one deeply rooted in service. While serving as a Transition Specialist, he noticed the completion rate for African American males that receives their GED was low. To serve as an intervention, he co-developed the male mentoring program Urban Male Initiative, a program that provides academic support to first generation and minority male students at Malcolm X College that come from under-served communities in the Chicago land area. Within the City Colleges of Chicago, he serves as adjunct faculty for the Urban Male Course at Malcolm-X and Kennedy-King College.

Still, even with all the work he does with the aforementioned organizations, Marlon felt there was more he could do. He founded Marlon Speaks, LLC, a platform that allows him to use his voice and experiences to promote social change. Marlon has always been passionate about helping to change the community. He believes with the proper training, education, and mentor-ship that a community can be changed for the better. Hence, he believes in speaking positive words and changing your mindset to create a better environment.
