What to expect 

Advantaged Thinking is a way of working that involves mobilizing the entire community to redirect attention from the perceived negatives or deficits of young people, to their strengths, talents, skills and potential. 

The Brotherhood of St Laurence (BSL) Youth Team work with young people across a range of different education, employment and training programs which recognise and nurture young people’s talents and capabilities to enable them to thrive. The Practice Team work specifically with teams both internally and externally to support staff with Advantaged Thinking practice approach.
