“I’m committed to empowering men of all walks to make peace with their pieces.”
Before JuVan Langford became a global voice for men’s empowerment, he faced a series of misfortunes. From the loss of his father to Leukemia to his mother’s battle with alcohol and substance abuse, he was placed in foster care, encountered sexual abuse and was profusely bullied throughout grade school. JuVan’s journey, woven with many layers and colors, is a powerful illustration of how tenacity can lead to transformation.
JuVan has since become a lifestyle entrepreneur, high performance business coach and global speaker. A former NCAA basketball player and commercial model, he now supports business leaders and entrepreneurs with building sustainable results in their brands, businesses and life. Granted the key to the city by the honorable Mayor Petty in his hometown Worcester, MA for his contribution to youth empowerment, joining the ranks with other notable honorees including Former President Obama.
Mens Health & Wellness
“Men are at war – within themselves. That is what is fueling the division of our families, communities and the world.”
JuVan’s specialization in men’s psychology and male-centered healing, centers on male identity, power, control, sex and sexuality, relationships, anxiety and the inner child. Having traveled and studied extensively throughout North America, Australia, Europe and Asia working with a diverse demographic of men, JuVan serves high achieving males including executives, entrepreneurs, athletes or public figures facing pressures of performance and prestige.
Beyond his global men’s only weekend training (The Elevation Effect), JuVan runs an online leadership and business academy (EMA), facilitates cohesion trainings for athletic teams and serves as a coach/mentor to men who are committed to mobilizing a movement or mission.
“Many men feel as though they have nothing human to lean on. Community is more than the answer, it’s the place where we are all reminded who we are.”
JuVan created The Elevation Effect, an immersive 2-day men’s only weekend, to offer men a safe space to establish personal/professional clarity, experience connectedness and equip them with tools for living a purpose driven life. Beyond his global trainings, he spearheads an online leadership and business academy (The Elevated Man Academy), facilitates cohesion trainings for collegiate athletic teams and serves as a coach & mentor to men committed to mobilizing a movement or mission.
“If we don’t first feed the men they will fail our boys.”
