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’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 belong to a youth organization for girls 11-20 called International Order of the Rainbow for Girls.  Rainbow allows young women to grow their leadership skills and public speaking, as well as doing hands-on community service; to gain confidence and organizational skills that I would not otherwise have.  There are also many scholarship opportunities that being in Rainbow offers, as we promote the value of education.”

“When I was eleven years old I was going through a great deal of personal turmoil. I was getting over the loss of a father, I had horrible self-esteem and I was doing poorly in school. I was so afraid to let anyone get close to me out of fear of being judged or not being accepted. When I joined rainbow it opened my eyes to life and all of its possibilities. It created a world where I could be myself and grow into a strong and empowered woman. Because of rainbow I went from a fourth grader who could barely read, to a second year veterinary student in the top 15th percentile of my class. Rainbow gives you the courage to discover what you want out of life and then gives you the tools to accomplish it.”

“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.”

“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.”

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.”

"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."
