A grant of £5,000 will help fund the “invaluable” work of Scott Walker, project manager, at the North Berwick Youth Project.
The funding has been awarded by Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland.
Mr Walker is responsible for all the youth work, staffing drop-in sessions at the Hope Rooms in Forth Street and organising several life skills programmes in partnership with North Berwick High School.
Ian Watson, youth project chairman, said: “We are very grateful to Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland for supporting this work. Scott is liked and respected by young people and our partners. He is an excellent manager of the part-time and sessional staff.”
