About

The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls (Rainbow) is a philanthropic sorority for girls ages 11-20, and does not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, orientation, disability, or religion. “Rainbow Gets Girls Ready for Life!” The leadership, organization and communication skills that girls learn in Rainbow are unparalleled, and not found in any other organization serving young women today.

Rainbow instills a deep sense of service in its members, and teaches girls the importance of service above self. Girls plan and attend hands-on service events in the community and raise funds for charities they are passionate about. In the past five years alone, chapters across Washington and Idaho have raised tens of thousands of dollars for charity.

Rainbow teaches girls how to lead through hands-on experience. The girls of each Assembly plan events, establish budgets, and run their own business meetings. Girls are elected by their peers to lead the organization at the local and state level, giving girls the unique opportunity to run a non-profit organization. Read more

“I am a Rainbow girl.  What that means is that I’m learning the skills to become the leader I want to be, give back to my community through service, and become more confident in myself.  It helps me to grow into who I am both in Rainbow and outside it with my other passions in my life.”

“I became very close to a youth organization called The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls, at the age of 11.  Rainbow is a non-profit organization that communicates leadership, community service, public speaking and responsibility to its members.  Rainbow as a team, builds each and every young girl/sister into a respectable and responsible woman. Rainbow gave me these skills and have forever changed my life.  Rainbow is an amazing organization for girls 11-20 to receive the knowledge and responsibility to get you ready for life.”

“I am in a Masonic youth organization called Rainbow.  Rainbow girls teaches us to be confident, gives us the ability to speak in front. Rainbow is a non-profit, service based organization for girls aged 11-20.  We learn valuable life skills, such as leadership, public speaking and how to communicate effectively, and we even offer scholarships!  Coming from a family of four brothers, Rainbow has given me the opportunity to get out of the house, and make life-long friends who are like sisters to me.”

The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls is a youth group for girls 11-20, that focuses on community service and leadership.  The girls help raise money for service organizations such as Make-A-Wish, Shriner’s Hospital, among many others.  While raising money for the service organizations, they learn life skills like public speaking, project managing, and communication.  During all of this, the girls have fun events and make life-long friends.  Would you like to hear about my Rainbow journey?

"My daughter, Cassie Lynn, and I were introduced to Rainbow by a friend in early 2013. Becoming part of the 'Family' happened quickly for us and has been one of the best choices we have made in our lives. Not only has it made our relationship stronger, Rainbow has given Cassie the strength and support to overcome her anxieties and become a stronger and more confident young woman. Volunteering, public speaking and long-lasting friendships for the both of us are just a few of the experiences we have gained by being a part of this wonderful, caring Rainbow Family."

“Rainbow is a non-profit youth organization that gives girls opportunities to develop great life skills while they are young.  Managing group projects, public speaking, working with finances and performing community service are just some of the things that I have been a part of since joining.  I know when I applied to college, all of these experiences really helped me.  And even after college, Rainbow offers higher leadership opportunities that are not only great for building resumes, but also just for preparing me for life and giving the skills I have needed, to balance a busy schedule.”

“I have been associated with IORG for 10 years as a parent, mother advisor and director of pledges. It has helped so much in providing a foundation of civility and morality to pass on to my daughter and to other young ladies. It has provided opportunities for public speaking, leadership, event planning, and time management that simply is not available to youth today. I honestly could not have asked for a better organization to help raise young ladies in these very trying times.”

“We have three generations of Rainbow in our family. My grandparents were involved with their six daughters; my parents with their three, my sister with her two, and myself with my two. I myself was a Rainbow Girl, and it was that time in my life that taught me more than one could ever know. I was once bashful and shy; Rainbow taught me to be confident and to have a certain poise that allows me to be able to take on the world.”
