Employee Spotlight: Caroline Sagae
For the past five years, Caroline Sagae is the Draper City Mayor's Youth Council Advisor and the liaison between the Administration and the Draper City Youth. She also volunteered before taking on the role, while her sons were in the program.
“I really enjoy living in Draper and I love working for the city. It is such a friendly place and I just love the people who work there. I love working with the youth of Draper, to get to know them and their families, as many of them have their siblings go through the program. We have 69 members and is probably the largest in Utah. I try to give the youth a vision of what Draper is about, from learning about the different departments in the city to the service they can give to the community. The DCMYC program has evolved and it now runs like a well-oiled engine. We always make dynamic changes that will improve the program and help develop the youth. We have expanded the executive board so that the youth can take more responsibilities managing their committees. When I am not helping with the program I love hanging out in my garden and backyard as it gives me a sense of peace. I also love reading books and being transported to another place!”
Some of the activities the Youth Council have been able to implement in 2020 include:
~ Helping out with the Haunted Trail Halloween event
~ Draper Park clean-up event
~ Letter-writing campaign to seniors in assisted living homes during Covid-19
~ Writing letters of support to military troops in boot camp
~ Handing out masks and sanitizer to fans attending CCHS football games
Thank you, Caroline, for your hard work and dedication to the youth of Draper City!
