Resume: The object of the research is the process of socialisation of modern Russian youth. The subject of the research are the peculiar features of how the traditional religious denominations of Russia (Orthodoxy, Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, as well as the Roman Catholic Church and the Union of evangelical Christians-Baptists of Russia) conduct the denominational social youth policy as an activity aimed at socialisation, spiritual and moral education and social development of modern Russian youth. The relevance of this topic is determined by the fact that during the crisis of the basic institutions of socialisation of modern Russian youth (the institution of family, state, media, labour, and other institutions), the institution of religion is, perhaps, the only socialisation institution that, compared to other socialisation institutions, still, and even more actively, fulfils its functions. The article analyses the peculiarities of the performance of denominational social youth policy by the above mentioned religious denominations traditional in Russia. The article gradually considers issues connected with: theoretical understanding of the youth policy by these religious denominations and organisations; establishment of a system of bodies aimed at youth outreach; functioning of the system of religious education, upbringing, cultural and leisure activity; staff training for educational work and youth outreach; missionary work; activities and functioning of youth organisations. The data collected as a result of the analysis allows to draw a conclusion about a big potential of the development of denominational social youth policy in the Russian Federation, as well as about the need for further study of this topic, which is new for the social and humanitarian sciences.
Keywords: denominations, traditional religious denominations, denominational youth policy, institution of religion, youth, socialisation, educational system, staff training, maintenance support, resources provision
