Informal structures as a factor of youth socialization: social and pedagogical aspect

Keywords: informal youth structures, socialization, subculture, youth, pedagogical interactions


Informal youth structures are a diverse and non-transferable phenomenon in our modernity.

 A person joins an informal group to be satisfied, ask for respect, mutual assistance, mutual protection

and close communication.

 The empirical base of the study is made up of data, subtracting the hour of the experiment, as it was

carried out with the help of Google Form (141 persons, most of the interviews were conducted in 18 to 22

years). The main century group, as it took part in the internship, were young people from 13 to 23 years

old, so that schoolchildren and students, could take a part in different subcultures of fandoms.

 As a reminder of the research carried out, the result of the interaction of young people with

 informal structures / subcultures is both positively and negatively signified on the socialization of young

people. In order to help the socialization of their developments, teachers can work indirectly through

 informal structures and secretly “control” those who are involved, promote the singing of values and

 reconciliation, and at the same time instill in and swing participants in these structures. Similar to the

 mutual understanding, search for sleepy floods, the exchange of knowledge can become a point in the

 interests and purposes of teachers and pupil, which promotes mutual understanding between them, as a

 result, accepting the effectiveness of pedagogical practices.
