- The paper presents the theoretical foundations for studying the development of children’s leadership qualities in a child ‘s public institution. Today, the issue of developing the personality of a child as a full-fledged citizen capable of fulfilling his/her personal and civilian capabilities and positively expressing himself /herself in society is becoming more topical. This problem can be exemplified by the growing number of public institutions with a positive impact on the personal development of children and teenagers. Guided by professional and experienced teachers, children and teenagers are engaged in socially useful activities. The paper considers the main Russian studies devoted to activities in children’s public institutions, including those on the issues of their history, organization and functioning. Researchers have paid much interest to the educational functions of children‘s institutions, to the training of teachers working with children in children‘s public institutions, to the socializing of teenagers in such institutions, and to the educational impact of children’s public institutions on the social engagement of teenagers. The authors consider a children’s public institution as a space for social education and analyse the studies that represent potential of children ‘s organizations as means of the social engagement of children and teenagers. Modern research sources and the realities of the educational and sociocultural situation show the growing interest to the issues of personality development, education and social adaptation. After analysing the pedagogical studies and summarizing the experience of several educational institutions, the authors conclude that by developing the leadership qualities in teenagers when performing activities in a children’s public institution, one promotes personal self-actualization and develops personal readiness to make life choices.
