[Autom. eng. transl.] The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between adolescent participation (understood as the possibility of having a voice in the family and at school) and Civic Identity, operationalized through its components: social capital, civic values and trust in institutions. 1173 adolescents aged 17 to 19 (M = 18.13, SD = 78; 49.6% males) were given a paper questionnaire during an hour of class. Based on the combination between the participation of adolescents in the family and at school (present or absent for each), four types were created. The analysis of variance shows statistically significant differences for all components of Civic Identity, highlighting on the one hand that if the family and the school give adolescents the opportunity to have a voice, the latter report higher levels of all the components underlying the Civic Identity; on the other hand it is important that adolescents find opportunities to have a voice in both of these contexts.
