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 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’m in a youth organization for girls 11-20, called the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls.  Rainbow gives girls a safe place to grow and gain confidence, working on leadership, community service, and public speaking.  Rainbow was/is my lifeline and continues to make me happy, and most of my best and life-long friends are a part of this group.  Without this organization, I wouldn’t be who I am today and I believe any girl can join and blossom in leadership and confidence through their journey in the group.

“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. ”

"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 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.”
