Kidz Express Leader Marco Dodd Prepares for Future
Marco Dodd, 27, didn’t spend summer 2019 like a typical college student: no flashy internship, no lost days at the beach. But then again, Marco Dodd isn’t your typical college student. The 2018 Bright Promises Foundation “Marciniak Bright Stars Award” winner is a cut above, a success story from Chicago’s South Austin neighborhood with a heart for kids in his community.
Dodd, a student at Concordia University-Chicago, serves as assistant director at Kidz Express, an after-school cross-age mentoring program, and current We Raise Foundation grantee.
