Keep6ix is a not-for-profit Toronto based organization, serving the Greater Toronto Area, that was founded in 2017 to make a meaningful difference in the lives of at risk youth from racialized communities who have been impacted by the criminal justice system.

Keep6ix offers various programs and services to help youth avoid going down a disempowering path towards incarceration. We also support and advocate for those who are currently incarcerated and provide post-release support so that they can overcome barriers and begin to pasitively re-build their lives within the community.

Keep6ix’s vision is to …

– Support criminalized and racialized communities to attain positivity and break the odds.
– Overcome systemic barriers to support at risk youth and those criminalized by the justice system.

Keep6ix’s mission is to …

– Provide holistic and integrated capacity-building programs to youth involved in the justice system.
– Prevent youth from going down a disempowering path by providing one-on-one mentoring, career conselling and employment skills training.
– Promote healthy self-esteem in youth through core life skills counselling to help build on their communication, interpersonal and leadership skills.

Richard Miller is the Founder of Keep6ix and a driven community leader, dedicated to assisting underserved youth. After experiencing and witnessing misrepresentation, racism, corruption, and injustices experienced by black youth and minorities, Richard decided to establish Keep6ix.
