Active Rainbow Girl Program (11 to 20)
What is the Active Rainbow Girl Program?
The Active Rainbow Girl Program is designed for the traditional aged girls in our youth program. We teach them interegy, patroitism, public speaking skills and assisting with fundamental leadership skills too.
Our active rianbow girls can plan on making new friends, seeing interesting places, and particpating in fun activities too. We encourage to be part of our on-going community service events too. The best part of the active Rainbow Girl program is that they are the role models and leaders to the youngest girls called pledges. Other role models for the Active Rainbow Girls are their Mother Advisors and of course the Freemasons too.
Girls ages 11-20 are official Rainbow Girls and are involved in every aspect of the organization. At this age, girls can be elected to hold office, travel locally or globally, conduct speaking engagements, oversee charity projects, and participate in all facets of Assembly work. It is at this level that members gain the knowledge and experience that will help them through every stage of life.
