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 organization for girls ages 11-20 that teaches valuable life skills, such as public speaking, and helps develop leadership skills.  In addition to that, it helps prepare girls for their future by teaching us how to balance a budget and how to organize events. This organization is really great because not only are we learning these skills, we’re forming life-long friendships.  Rainbow I like my second family and personally I’m lucky to be in it.”

"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."

“When I first joined Rainbow I saw it as a great opportunity to make friends outside of school, as well as a group of people who I could look up to because they interact with public figures. But now as I reach my last few years in Rainbow, I have come to finally realize how much this organization has prepared me for life outside of school. Rainbow taught me not only how to interact with people, but how to be confident in any decisions I make in the future. Rainbow truly does get girls ready for life.”

“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.”

“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.”

“I am a part of a community service sorority called the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls, which promotes mentorship among girls 11-20, leadership opportunities, as this organization is run by the girls, along with sisterhood.  Based on the positions I have had on a local and state level, I have learned to have better communication skills, to serve the community with greater purpose, and to become a more responsible person managing time with activities in and out of this organization.  I love this organization because it has given me skills I can use in the work force as well as compassion for others at school and with my family. ”

“I belong to a youth organization called Rainbow, and joining was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.  Us girls learn all sorts of life skills like communication, leadership, public speaking and community service.  Some of my greatest friends are in Rainbow and I never would have met them without all the travel opportunities Rainbow has given me.  Any girl ages 11-20 can join and learn how to be an even better daughter, sister and woman.”
