A limited number of works have been identified to identify the relationship between propensity to risk and psychological resourcefulness of the individual in the student age. The following psychodiagnostic tools were used in the empirical study: "Questionnaire of psychological resourcefulness of personality" (Shtepa, 2018) and "Questionnaire risk propensity in different spheres of activity" (Vdovichenko, 2007).

Low level of such resources as faith in the good, work on yourself, kindness to people, helping others, love, etc., that is resource components based on the value-semantic basis of the individual. Therefore, in practical work it is necessary to focus on this side, if there is a task to reduce the risky behavior of students and enrich their psychological resources. The obtained data are the basis for continuing the study with a more extensive sample both in terms of age and professional affiliation.
