Assemblies in Nevada have two regular meetings per month, every two weeks on an established day, time, and location to plan their activities and perform the official opening and closing ceremonies of the ritual. In addition to those meetings are other local assembly events the girls have planned to hold during that month, which may include a variety of fun, fundraising, or charity/community service activities as described earlier.

There are opportunities for the girls to travel to other assemblies in the state for their meetings or activities, and to attend and participate in various state-level functions and events. With the assistance of the Advisory Board, the girls decide on the planned meetings and activities of their own assembly, trying to schedule times not in conflict with other planned state Rainbow, community or school events.


Giving unselfishly of one’s self to assist another in need can be one of life's most rewarding experiences. That's what the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls is all about. The primary function of a Rainbow Girl is to serve others and humanity.

Rainbow Girls on the local and state level chose a charity to support during each term. Girls and adults provide service and hold fundraisers to raise money for that charity. They raise money through a wide variety of activities. At the conclusion of the local assembly or state assembly terms, the charity is presented a check for those funds raised, as well as a report on the number of service hours given.

Each year, hundreds of hours of community service were provided to organizations such as 3 Square Food Bank, Ronald McDonald House, Child ID Program, Susan B Komen Foundation, as well as many hours provided to our Statewide Service Projects.

Statewide Service Project

In Nevada, the Grand Worthy Advisor chooses a statewide service project. Assemblies help the Grand Worthy Advisor by providing service hours or raising money for her chosen project.

The 2023-2024 service project was focused on supporting veterans. Nevada Rainbow collected $3,388.88.

Since last Grand Assembly, Nevada’s Rainbow Girls reported a total of 2,266 hours of service. This is an average of 36 hours per the 62 members reporting service hours (prorated to ensure equity between all assemblies).

Additionally, funds were raised at coin marches which are held at every Official Visit and from Rainbow Sunday while at Camp, as well as selling Grand Worthy Advisor pins and Speech Books. All of our assemblies take pride in organizing a specific fund raising event to assist our statewide effort.
