About Me

Hi! I’m Jernavis Draughn, an author, speaker, thinker, CEO and Founder of Athletes Global Corporation. Thanks for stopping by.

Here’s my personal PURPOSE in one sentence. I”m here to SERVE and HELP move our amazing and diverse society FORWARD in a POSITIVE way. I Attended American University where I majored in communications and was a 2 year captain and starter on the basketball team. After leaving American University, I’ve been blessed to train with Hall of Famer John Lucas, assistant coach of the Los Angeles Clippers. While at Mr. Lucas’ NBA camp in Houston, I was able to improve and expand my basketball IQ enormously. Additionally, I spent time training and received workouts from Cleveland Cavaliers assistant coach Melvin Hunt. I’ve played professional basketball for 7 years in numerous leagues in the United States, Europe and Asia.

After ending my basketball career in 2013, I’m COMMITTED to taking Athletes Global Leadership Academy worldwide to help people personally grow from all walks of life. I’m exceedingly involved in community service, providing life skills and outreach to at risk youth. Additionally, our organization provides youth and adult leadership training, educational, fitness and sports programs in more than 30 states. Hopefully, I’m able to inspire others to live their potential and reach far beyond their personal GOALS!
