What is the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls?

The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls is a non-profit, service organization for girls between the ages of 11 and 20.  The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls helps girls develop self-confidence, self-respect, self-control, and leadership skills.  Members learn about charity, hope, and service through their work and involvement in their community, church, school, and Rainbow assembly.  The purpose of the Rainbow organization is to promote positive participation in the community, teach leadership skills, and engage in service to others.  At the same time, the girls enjoy fun activities such as slumber parties, going to the park, ice cream socials, going to camp, and much more.  The assembly also holds fundraisers to help subsidize activities, support local charities, and donate to the statewide Grand Charity Fund.  Through our organization girls have the opportunity to receive financial scholarships and loans to assist their ongoing education.  Although Rainbow observes the belief in a Supreme Being, it does not promote one religion over another.  Rather, Rainbow encourages girls to participate in and attend the religious services practiced by their family.

The seven colors of the Rainbow represent the seven teachings that each member receives on her journey toward "the pot of gold. "

 Red = Love:   

  In all its forms.

 Orange = Religion:

  Although Rainbow is not a religious organization.

Yellow = Nature:

  Teaches its importance in daily life.

Green = Immortality

  An understanding of death as part of life.

Blue = Fidelity

  An emphasis on being honest and reliable.

Indigo = Patriotism

  Encouraging good citizenship.

Violet = Service

  The lesson that ties all others together.
