HOME TOWN PRIDE
We're proud to contribute to the growth of our community.
Prairie State Energy Campus is proud to be a citizen of Washington County, Illinois and works to be a good neighbor, giving back to its community. Prairie State's community giving focuses on environmental conservation, youth support and economic revitalization. As a part of our youth support program, Prairie State brings the Junior Achievement curriculum to area schools at least twice a year. Junior Achievement educates young people about work readiness, entrepreneurship, and personal finance with hands-on, engaging programs. Its purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Prairie State participates in Junior Achievement through the JA of Greater St. Louis's southwestern Illinois chapter. To read more about Junior Achievement, please visit their website at http://www.jamvi.org.
