Summary/Abstract: The presented paper deals with the issue of political and civil participation of youth as a unity of its two specific forms. The paper predominately focuses on grouping of young people in youth organizations. It describes youth political organizations as a subcategory of youth organizations, their fundamental functions as well as it analyzes youth political organizations in Slovakia, in particular. Subsequently, the acquired theoretical data are confronted with the findings of the survey uncovering the views of students of political sciences on youth political organizations while their high interest in the political sphere was expected. Based on the analysis of the survey findings, it is obvious that even if students are not very interested in these organizations, they criticize their ineffective activity and expect greater propagation of their work as well as a greater activity towards their sympathizers
