When we undergo a major life transition, such as becoming a single mom, returning from military service, or recovering from a major life event, we must restart our careers and regain confidence in our ability to succeed in the world. As a community of women working together, we can rise to seize opportunities and share the journey to success.
Gals Starting Over was founded by a group of women that have been through major life transitions and have regained their footing on new career paths that are giving them a greater sense of security, purpose, and joy than what they have ever experienced before.
The nonprofit organization Gals Starting Over was officially formed in 2013 in the South Bay and holds meetings at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church. In 2017, GSO added a Long Beach branch and holds meetings at Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church. Beginning in May of 2020, the workshop program is provided via Zoom in response to the pandemic. Over 160 women have attended the Career Success Workshop and there are over 50 volunteers and coaches that have participated.
