I am hoping to get to know many of you. Here is a little about me. I worked in the nonprofit, education, healthcare, and government sectors for 30 years. I now serve as President of the Think Tank Consulting Group, LLC. My team at TTCG provides technical assistance and training to nonprofit leaders, school districts, and public charter schools in developing grants and funding relationships with federal, state, and local government agencies, corporations, and foundations. Our work includes governmental and intergovernmental relations, securing grants, contracts, and fundraising campaigns. We focus on forming community-based and faith-based collaborations and public-private partnerships to provide social and educational services to youth.
My research focuses on experiential learning and leadership, youth programming, reimagining high school, social justice, equity, and youth economic mobility.
I serve on the South Carolina Advisory Committee at the US Global Leadership Coalition and as a Business Advocate and former Chairman of the Board of Director at Together SC, the South Carolina Non-Profit Association. I am married to Dr. Audrey Rhodes Boyd, a Family Physician. We have one son Justin Boyd, daughter in law Tiffany, and three grandchildren, Justin, Jr., Taylin, and Jace Antonio.
