Born and raised in Madison WI, Armaad “Jamaal” Eubanks developed a passion for both basketball and making his community better. These passions led him to co-create a mentoring program, Pivotal Transition, that focused on giving Black youth the tools to look beyond tomorrow. Jamaal completed his undergraduate degree at Huntingdon College, as well as two Masters degrees from Edgewood College. All the while, he worked in the school district and was a full-time parent to his children. Jamaal developed a creed that helped him push through the hardest of times: “Fuel or crutch.” Through mentoring and interactive, motivational workshops, he spread the message of #FuelOrCrutch and branched out to begin consulting with school districts, colleges and community organizations to solve equity and behavior issues with at risk youth in Madison.
In 2018 he started Eubanks Solutions, LLC. The Determination to Succeed, his first book, was recently released. Jamaal still loves coaching and watching basketball every opportunity he gets, especially with his children, here in Madison.
