DNA stands for Differences Never Apply. It is a youth led peer mentoring project tackling extremism and promoting greater social cohesion in the local communities of Birmingham and was awarded the Children and Young People Now Award 2011 for Youth Work. A critical part of the project involves young people exploring their sense of identity, belonging and purpose. International Biosciences has consistently given fantastic service in producing ancestral maps and information from DNA provided by the young people. Not only do the maps and information produce eye opening results in terms of young people’s geographic and racial ancestry, they are a perfect backdrop to help young people explore who they are and where they belong today. I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism of International Biosciences and the service they provide. It is second to none. Thank you for helping us to make the project such a great success!
