Get to know the man behind The Determination to Succeed

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. After completing his undergraduate degree at Huntingdon College and two Masters degrees from Edgewood College while working in the school district and being a full time parent to his children, he 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, an umbrella for the different aspects of his company. The Determination to Succeed is his first book that has just been released. He still loves, coaching , and watching basketball every opportunity he gets with his children in his home town Madison, WI where he still resides.
