About Vamos Outdoors Project
Vamos Outdoors Project (VOP) works to create opportunities for Latinx and English Language Learner youth to participate in environmental education, outdoors, and recreation activities. We also work with local outdoors organizations to help them connect with the Latinx/ELL population and build a healthy diverse outdoors community.
VOP programming is currently on hiatus. We are working with the Bellingham School District and the Washington Education Services District to find ways to support families during this time. Outdoor recreation has been especially beneficial for mental health during quarantine, and the disparities in the outdoors are highlighted right now more than ever.
We are a volunteer dependent organization, our work depends on the long term commitment of volunteers to help run programming and build positive relationships with the youth. If you know a Vamos volunteer, give them a big thanks!
We are based out of Bellingham, Washington.
