The purpose of the study presented in this article is to study the social and psychological characteristics of activity of modern youth in the context of its social and political activity. The relevance of the study carried out involves on the basis of theoretical data the necessity to create practice-oriented recommendations aimed at development of social and political activity of youth, taking into account the social demand. An empirical study involved 150 people (at the age of 18 to 27 y. o.). The social and psychological study devoted to the study of social and psychological characteristics of social and political activity, helped to establish a number of features that make up the psychological content of this phenomenon. In that way, social and political activity is heavily tied to civic and protest activity, which is confirmed by the obtained correlation relationships. The factor analysis carried out revealed 3 main factors, differentiated by the presence or absence of a load in relation to social and political activity, which we called: “Citizens”, “Oppositionists”, “Indifferents”, that reflect the psychological content of social activity.
