The article is based on the mass survey of young people in the regions of the Siberian and Far Eastern Federal Districts, which was conducted by the corporate authors of the Department of Political Science of Altai State University in the fall of 2020. The survey involved 2,500 pupils of grades 8-11 in schools and 1-2 year students of universities. The sample is a quota sample with the control of age, type of settlement, and region of residence. The information was collected using the questionnaire method in the following federal subjects: Zabaykalsky Krai, the Republic of Buryatia, Primorsky Krai, and Kamchatka Krai. The survey data facilitated identification of the level of awareness of young people of the projects of the state youth policy and its assessment by them. There have also been determined preferred formats of the youth interaction with the state and the desired state support for young people. The authors come to the conclusion that there is lack of awareness of this issue among young people. Schoolchildren and students of the Far Eastern Federal District have little experience of participating in projects and programs of the state youth policy, estimate it low and have little idea about it. At the same time, the studied segment of young people demonstrates their readiness to cooperate with the state about education, employment and accommodation of young people. One of the key tasks of the state youth policy, when interacting with young people, is to involve reference persons and communication channels to increase the awareness of students about currently implemented projects and programs.

Key words: youth, school students, students, state youth policy, political attitudes, political activity, trust, opinion leaders, youth awareness, region, the Far Eastern Federal District
