Born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Vetto immigrated to the United States at the age of six and grew up in Chelsea, Massachusetts. Growing up in the inner-city sparked an intense desire within Vetto to empower his community and help others in the fight for social change.
Vetto is the current Executive Director at Small Can Be Big Inc. Their mission is to offer a "simple solution to a complex problem”. SCBB provides an online platform for people to do what they always do best in a crisis: help one another. By harnessing the power of small, direct donations, SmallCanBeBig.org and its online community of donors can make a big difference for families currently living on the edge. Vetto will continue to oversee the next evolutionary phase at the organization, aiming at serving more families throughout the Commonwealth, creating stronger bridges between community donors, partner agencies, and recipients. Vetto is a direct representative of the populations and demographics currently served at Small Can Be Big and has a deeply rooted connection to the obstacles and challenges that Boston-area families and their communities are currently facing.
Vetto has a BA in Political Science from the University of Massachusetts Boston. In 2012, Vetto was selected to the Latino Leadership Initiative at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and in 2016, was a graduate of the Institute for Non-Profit Practice at Tufts University’s Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service. In the summer of 2017, Vetto was officially nominated by Gov. Charlie Baker to serve on the Massachusetts Latino Advisory Commission. Vetto enjoys traveling, cooking, learning about different cultures, and inspiring others to lead.
