Future Kings

Our Mission

To use education, mentoring, training, practical experiences, and mastery of 21st century technology in order to create a pipeline of young men from underserved communities who excel in STEM related careers and positively influence their communities.

Our Vision

To “Engineer Great Futures” by teaching advanced engineering concepts to young men for the purpose of developing a cadre of culturally responsible professionals and entrepreneurs who positively influence their community through academic success, economic achievement, and job creation.

Our Goal

We have 3 primary goals within Future Kings:

  1. To shrink the opportunities gap by having each young man that enters the Future Kings’ program learn to use STEM to maximize his career opportunities and to better serve his community.

  2. To help 75% of students earn A’s – B’s in STEM classes and 100% student and parent satisfaction with our program.

  3. To serve 10,000 students and deliver 300 STEM majors from underserved communities each year to colleges and universities nationwide by 2021.

Dr. Arik King is committed to helping secondary school students master math and science in an applied learning environment. His doctoral research involves using computer games to improve math achievement in 7th grade students.

His commitment to breaking the cycle of poverty in African American and Hispanic communities by introducing students to lucrative STEM professions is what provided the foundation for his creation of Future Kings in 2011.

Since its inception, Future Kings has served more than 500 students and delivered STEM majors to universities including University of West Virginia, NOVA, University of Virginia, and Morehouse College.

Through grants and/or contributions and numerous volunteers serving as mentors and instructors, Future Kings’ has built a firm foundation.

Collaborative relationships with other organizations are the foundation of the Future Kings program and the cornerstone helping us “engineer great futures!”

  • Our relationship with NOVA and George Mason University allows students to actually walk onto a college campus and feel at home – a critical part of breaking down the barrier between poverty and post-secondary education.

  • National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) hosts STEM competitions, STEM conferences, and high quality STEM materials that contribute to our STEM programs.

  • NOVA, Mason’s Game & Technology Academy, and The Profit Partner all provide in-kind services for space, materials, and fundraising for Future Kings. We also have over 10 instructors, an active Board of Directors, and a volunteer structure that provides more than $400,000 annually of in-kind services


To inspire as many young people as possible, Future Kings hosts an annual STEM Expo with more than 1,000 participants. Because of the volunteer instructors we attract and the dynamic learning environments, the STEM Expo receives close to 100% favorable ratings each year.
