Abstract

The aim of the current socio-psychological research was been to explore the system of interpersonal relations in modern youth organizations. The study applied a standardized set of socio-psychological methods and techniques. Results indicate that modern children's and youth organizations have a number of socio-psychological features associated both with the processes of differentiation (the formation and development of status structures) and with the processes of integration (common values, proclaimed as the values of the organization, aspiration for social interaction, and collaboration).
