Maintaining an effective government youth policy is crucial for the sustainable development of the country. It is important to develop tools today that will help young people to successfully begin their careers and integrate into the labour force. Russian Student Brigades are among the countrys largest youth organizations. Over the last 60 years, student brigades have served as one of the most effective tools for graduates in Russia to gain relevant work experience while still in education. The Russian Student Brigades have an active presence at power grid, oil and gas, and nuclear facilities in Russia. For companies in the fuel and energy sector, this represents an opportunity to attract the most motivated graduates, and for the students it is a way to earn money while testing their professional aptitude in real-world conditions, namely at fuel and energy production facilities. It is important to foster this kind of cooperation and to replicate best practices with the aim of developing human capital potential in the fuel and energy sector. Understanding what conditions are necessary for effective interaction between energy companies and the student brigades is essential. What is the experience of working at fuel and energy companies for construction brigades? How can the success of student brigades organizing within the energy sector be measured?
