A senior trader for Deutsche Bank in New York City, Sean Kemery has spent more than 15 years as a finance professional on Wall Street. Sean Kemery also stands out as an active member of the community who supports a range of charities both in New York and around the country. Among other organizations, he regularly donates to the Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation.
Founded in 2002 by longtime New York Yankee player and manager Joe Torre and his wife, Ali, the Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation works to end the cycle of domestic violence and abuse through innovative school-based programs for teens. The organization’s hallmark program, Margaret’s Place, provides a range of healing and counseling services in designated “safe rooms” in school buildings and on campuses. Margaret’s Place also includes peer leadership training programs, individual counseling, and awareness campaigns.
Another highlight of the Margaret’s Place program is its violence prevention curriculum, Youth Empowered to Speak (YES). Aimed at students in grades 7 through 9, the YES curriculum is taught by specially trained counselors and educators over the course of five weeks with the goal of empowering students to end the cycle of domestic violence.
