Each month, the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club staff selects a youth to represent the Club as the Youth of the Month. The Youth of the Month selection is not a competition but rather a recognition of a Club member who personifies the Club experience and serves as a positive example for their peers.
Jamily Dias has been a Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club Member since 2018. Jamily attends the Edgartown School and is currently in the 3rd grade. Jamily is our November Youth of the Month -chosen for her academic performance, responsibility, and role model. Jamily has a positive attitude and willingness to help wherever needed. Her academic performance is strong, always participating in PowerHour; Jamily completes her homework as soon as she arrives at the Club.
Jamily says that’s her role models are her mom and dad because “they help me, feed me, clothe me, gave me a house, and gave me life.”
Jamily’s interests include playing games and taking trips to Florida to go to Disneyworld (she loves the rides!), and she enjoys swimming. Jamily doesn’t know what she wants to be in the future, but she is considering becoming a lifeguard, firefighter, police officer, or waiter at a restaurant. Jamily’s favorite thing about the Club is that she “can have fun, do art, go outside, play, and do my homework.”
