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

“Rainbow is a service based international organization for girls 11-20 that teaches leadership, public speaking and sisterhood.  I’ve met many life-long friends through this organization, not only in my city but all over Washington and Idaho.  Not to mention the beautiful dresses!  Overall, it gets girls ready for life using sisterhood, leadership and by creating a mentorship between the younger and older girls that is impossible to replicate.”

“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.”

"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."

“I’m in love with an organization called Rainbow.  As a member, you learn crucial skills and traits you will need later on in life.  Personally I’ve been a member for about 7 years now and can honestly say I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it weren’t for the leadership, communication and organizational skills I learned.  In addition, my confidence and compassion have soared through the roof!  Rainbow gets girls ready for life and I’m a living example.”
