The article discusses results of the inquiry carried out in 2010 that involved high school students from Moscow and Riga. The inquiry helped to compare features of value orientations in students of these two cities, and to reveal and describe the impacts of one's belonging to ethnic majority or minority on the character of his/her value orientations. As it was discovered, Moscow students focus primarily on achieving social success, whereas Lithuanian students are mainly concerned with health issues. Female students aim at maintaining positive relationships with their parents and family, while male students are more concerned with attaining wealth. Furthermore, it was revealed that values of family and personal relationships are higher in Russian adolescents living in Lithuania (representatives of ethnic minority), and their need to self-actualize develops later than that of Moscow adolescents (as representatives of ethnic majority).

Keywords: value orientations, age groups, sociocultural groups, gender differences, ethnic majority, ethnic minority

Column: Applied Research and Practice
