The leisure time of youth as a current and important social phenomenon certainly becomes one of the most important pedagogical issues of modern education. On the one hand, leisure time can provide opportunities for personal growth and development, and on the other hand it can also become the source of many risky behaviors. There are many researches related to this topic – adolescents' free time, but many dilemmas still remain unsolved. The intention of this paper was to examine the importance of organized free activities in the function of preventing adverse and socially undesirable adolescents behaviors. An attempt was also made to determine the tendency of risky behavior connected to individual characteristics of students, such as age and school success. In this research conducted in June 2017, participated 116 students from two Zagreb high schools. The obtained results confirmed that involvement in organized free activities is associated with a lesser manifestation of socially undesirable and risky behavior among high school students. Similarly, older students tend to be less prone to forms of risky behavior than younger students, while very good and good students are more included in organized free activities than excellent students. The results presented in this research confirm the protective role of organized leisure time as an important factor in the prevention of risky behaviors.
