    Here's a link to a Facebook group that's leading the discussion on the potential comeback of the organization. I don't have the time, energy, or horse in the race to get involved, but it's worth monitoring.

    My daughter does not find the rainbow girls all that appealing but was interested in Job's Daughters. As far as their dwindling numbers I think they are suffering from lack of publicity, much like we are. They need to get out there and conduct publicity campaigns which can be done with little to no money.

    On a side note, what is the difference between Job's Daughters and Rainbow Girls? I'm sorry if this was already discussed somewhere, I couldn't find it.

    As far as I know, the orgs are both quite similar. The main difference I think is that relation to a Master Mason is not required for Rainbow, but it is required for Job's Daughters. I could be wrong about that though. I'm sure the types of activities are differing as well.

    That's correct in California and Illinois the jurisdictions I know, so it's probably true across the board.

    The brother who followed me through the line in Illinois is currently in the adult adviser grand line for Illinois Jobbies. He reports the Jobbies and Rainbow trade members extensively and as a result both orders benefit.

    As with our lodges, the youth groups languished for years for lack of kids not for lack of adult advisers. The youth group meetings I've attended have had about the same number of adult advisers as members. Some had waiting lists of qualified adult advisers - The entire line in my lodge went through the prep course one year so we were all qualified to start.

    I too was saddened to learn that those who were running Job's Daughters at the time were unwilling to adopt the required background checks. They have worked for DeMolay and for Rainbow. I've often wondered why the JD's leadership was so stubborn on that matter. Oh well....
