What do we do?
The first of its kind in the UK, delivered as fun, interactive weekly live Zoom calls with role models and mentors. This digital community for girls is the first of its kind in the UK, and not one to miss. Co founders Polly and Jo are nurturing and growing a brilliant team who have the passion and dedication to helping teen girls navigate this time and thrive.
Described as "a digital hug" and “a weekly dose of friendship, happiness and community” "like a digital youth club" by its members and "exactly what young women need right now" by a parent.
The HOW People, founded by GP and mum of a nearly 14 year old girl Dr Jo Watkins and co-founder Polly Crook a design, strategy and spreadsheet guru, is a unique and exciting digital community with weekly sessions connecting girls aged 11-16 yrs to inspirational role models, mentors, coaches and experts.
Growing confidence and resilience while inspiring girls to carve their own path with the help of mentors and role models.

Teen Girls Parenting Summit
Over 10 hours of great content. Recorded and available for you to enjoy in your own time.
We laughed, we cried, we listened, we learnt, we shared and we took away so many tips and tricks to make us better parents.
This is what it is all about. Getting the right people in front of the right people. These experts know what they are doing.
Dr Jo Watkins
GP, Mum of 4, Homeschooler, Traveller
"We are born facilitators and connectors. Making things happen and putting the right people together. Giving girls of different generations role models and mentors within different fields. What unites us both in our very different careers is that it was human connections and conversations, often chance ones, and taking opportunities that made, and continue to make, a difference. The education system is putting our kids in boxes earlier and earlier and often young people just haven’t been exposed to or heard about all the options and paths in life"
A career in action sports, Mum of 2, Beach lover
"The HOW People was born to build confidence. To inspire, support and connect. Showing teenagers that life doesn't begin and end with GCSE’s. To empower the next generation of awesome females. My parent's mantra when my brothers and I were growing up was 'Give them roots, and give them wings'. The understanding that anything is possible when we put our minds to it, to have belief in ourselves and in our goals, and never let anyone put you in a box. Burn the box! Be who you are, be kind, and support each other, the rest will come."
