VAMOS! Board of Directors

The VAMOS! Board was formed in 1987 and has always reflected the founders beliefs and the families that have worked hard to build and maintain the spirit and the loving culture of VAMOS!  In October 2013, VAMOS! made the decision to hire our first employee here in the U.S. The work of managing VAMOS! had become more than a volunteer board could effectively manage. In order for our organization to continue to grow, to fundraise, to expand and to implement our exceptional programs and services for the poor in Mexico, the Board moved to create the position of Executive Director and hired Sean Dougherty. Sean served for 8 years as Director of Operations for Hopeworks, a nonprofit located in Camden, NJ.  Sean brought with him a wealth of fund-raising and nonprofit governance experience. Sean served as Vice President of the VAMOS! board since 1999. As a board officer, he has been a part of the growth of VAMOS! and was familiar with the values and philosophy that serve as our foundation. VAMOS! remains incorporated in Weston, VT.
