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’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 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.”
