The InternationalOrder of the Rainbow for Girls (IORG) is a youth group for girls between the ages of 11 and 20.
The girls learn about charity, hope, and service through their work and involvement with the local and Grand service projects annually.
On April 6, 1922, the degrees of the InternationalOrder of the Rainbow for Girls was first exemplified on a class of one hundred seventy-one girls in the auditorium of the Scottish Rite Temple, McAlester, Oklahoma.
As the Order of DeMolay had come under his close study and observation during his Masonic activities, he decided that another Order for girls, setting forth some of the principles of Freemasonry, would be welcomed if it did not have to have a Masonic parent or grandparent as a requirement, as the Job's Daughters did.
The first class of girls that was initiated into the Order consisted of a class of 171 girls, on April 6, 1922, in the auditorium of the Scottish Rite Temple in McAlester.
The InternationalOrder of the Rainbow for Girls has Assemblies in 46 states in the United States as well as in 7 other countries.
