We aimed to explore how high school students’ citizenship activity (citizenship behav-iours) was associated with relationships in their families and their hope for success (self-belief as a personality construct). One hundred and fifty five students (99 high school and 56 technical high schools students from Szczecin; 98 girls) filled out the Citizenship Behaviour Questionnaire, the Hope for Success Questionnaire, and My Family—the Questionnaire of Family Relations. All dimensions of family relations (communication, identity, autonomy, and cohesion) were positively related to the ado-lescents’ hope for success and citizenship activity, with the exception of political activi-ty. Hope for success correlated positively with general citizenship activity and passive and active citizenship (excluding activity oriented toward change). Higher cohesion and autonomy predicted a stronger hope for success and were related to stronger activ-ity for change (direct relationship only) and stronger political (only indirectly through increased hope), social and personal activity (directly and indirectly). Good family relations were conducive to the development of hope for success and to civic engage-ment that encompassed all forms of citizenship: passive, semi-active and active.
