Welcome to The Sovereign Grand Lodge, International Association of Rebekah Assemblies, Youth Website. The purpose of this site is to provide information to our members and advisors about events and programs that are available. This site is also a forum to communicate and share information between our lodges as well as our members. Finally, we invite any visitors to our site, who are not members of our three-link fraternity, to stay and browse as long as you like. Should you have any questions about our programs or becoming a member, please email us or contact one of the committee members at the numbers listed on the "Contact Us Page".




Junior Lodges are open to any boy between the ages of 8 and 21. The watchwords of this degree are Honor and Fidelity. The symbolic colors of the degree are Silver and Dark Blue.



Theta Rho Girls’ Clubs are for girls between the ages of 8 and 21. The Theta Rho motto is "Happiness through Service" and the symbolic colors of the degree are Peach and Yale Blue.



United Youth Group is the third branch of The Sovereign Grand Lodge, International Association of Rebekah Assemblies Youth Programs. The Group is open to boys and girls from age 8 to 18 in a co-ed lodge setting. In lodge sessions, the youth are in charge of the activities of the lodge, under the direction of adult advisors. The boys and girls are encouraged to accept positions of leadership and responsibility, if they so choose. In the lodge session, the youth plan their work, social and fun activities, and projects in the lodge or community. This program differs from the Junior Lodge and Theta Rho meetings in that it does not use passwords, signs or ritualistic degrees
