Would you recommend International Order Of The Rainbow For Girls?

The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls has helped me come out of my shell. When I joined I couldn't speak in public, lead, or do any service to my community. Now I can speak in front of hundreds, have been president of my club, and I have done 100+ hours of service. I've also made tons of friends throughout California. I highly recommend this fantastic organization because it can help you too.
