International Order of Jobs Daughters is an organization for girls between the ages of 11 and 20 who are related to Masons. It was established in the year 1920 with the purpose of ‘character building through moral and spiritual development.’ 
The Order is the only national youth organization that requires its members to have a relationship to a Mason.
The ritual is based on the Book of Job, “And in all the land were no women found as fair as the daughters of Job; and their Father gave them inheritance among their brethren.”
Job’s Daughters are taught the principles of respect for parents, patriotism, love of God, patience and faith. Their meeting place is called a “Bethel,” or Holy Place where the girls elect an Honored Queen and wear white Grecian robes with purple emblematic of those worn during the time Job.
Job’s Daughters support many philanthropic projects including Masonic and Eastern Star Homes, Shriners Hospitals for Children, Knights Templar Eye Foundation, seeing-eye dogs, cancer clinics, and many others. 
Social activities in the Bethels are varied and include drill teams, choirs, drama clubs, along with parties and dances.
To complete their higher education Job’s Daughters may borrow from the Supreme Council Educational Fund without interest. Many Grand Jurisdictions offer scholarship awards for deserving members.
Truly international in scope, there are Job’s Daughters Bethels throughout the continental United States, in Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, in the provinces of Canada, in Australia, Japan, and the Philippines.
