Summary: Financial education as a continuous business activity, either focusing on children and youth or not, has been on the agenda of many European Union member states, particularly Eurozone countries. Many institutions in these countries enjoy the direct support of the state in financial terms or otherwise, for their activities in the field of financial education. When it comes to the countries in our region, the practice has shown that almost all neighboring countries deal with financial education and assign an increasing significance to these activities. The subject of this paper is the analysis of selected countries in the region of Southeastern Europe, in the field of financial education, focusing on children and youth. In recent years, these countries: Albania, Montenegro, Macedonia, Serbia, Czech Republic, and Turkey, have achieved substantial results and implemented important projects. In our research, we used the methodology of direct interviews, in combination with publicly available documents.
