This article intend to do an investigation aimed to examine new practices and policies for collective young people, considering the cultural actions performed by young people as the privileged locus of political action. The highlight is based on the reflection on the relations between epistemological, theoretical, conceptual and methodological conceptions in constructing and implementing a research focus on an ethnographic field. As research subjects, are young groups that act in the suburb of different areas from Sao Paulo - north, south, east and west; these groups are the protagonists of actions mediated by culture, politics, everyday life related with public policy. The ethnography is focused in the data collection based on ethnographic observation, depth interviews, producing imagery collections and a feedback to the young investigated.
