    The overall concept evolved in 2013 when a group of concerned African-American men 

explored ways of improving the education of young students in the community. With an 

overarching desire to make a difference, they adopted the name, "Arrested Potential, Inc. as a 

sign of their commitment to assist students in learning how to navigate obstacles and reach their 

full potential. These men believed strongly that, that if they leveraged their collective talents and 

resources, they could become the change agents in their community and create value systems 

within children and parents whereby they become self-sufficient and acquire skill sets that enable 

them to overcome poverty.
