The article analyzes the data of an empirical study of the value orientations of Kazakhstani youth. The author believes that the problem of studying the youth value orientations has two interrelated aspects: first, through such surveys, we identify the whole society dominant values; second, we reveal features of the value orientations of the young people as a specific socio-demographic group. The article analyzes the empirical results of the project conducted by the National Research Center ‘Youth’ of the Eurasian National University named after L.N. Gumilyov and devoted to the problems of social and cultural adaptation of youth in the cities of Kazakhstan. The project focused on such questions as the system of youth values, their susceptibility to re-evaluation, differences in the youth outlook priorities in gender and age groups. The results of the research show that, on the one hand, boys and girls adhere to the individual achievements strategies characterized by self-reliance, activity and orientation on the career; on the other hand, there is a clear prevalence of the values related to the closest social circle.
