Below are the paid positions at Prairie. Prairie is a truly voluntary organization—it functions because volunteers plan and present programs and services, help with child care, teach children, help with potlucks, and more! There’s no better way to get to know us than to work with us. It’s easy to get involved in any of these activities.
