The main goal of religious and cult organizations is to attract new adherents through special psychological and manipulative techniques. Such methods of influence cannot be applied to every person, therefore, there are a number of certain mental and social determinants, through which it becomes possible to involve a new person in a religious organization. Thus, the aim of the study is to assess the determinants of involvement of young people to religious and cult organizations to identify groups of factors and characteristics of relations in the family, social-psychological characteristics of the individual, as well as the impact of the Internet on the involvement of young people in religious organizations. The theoretical analysis revealed the determinants of youth involvement in religious organizations. Factor analysis brought to light 4 groups of factors of youth involvement in religious organizations. The study identified social-psychological differences between young people, involved in religious organizations and those, who are not involved in religious organizations.
