Scouts and Girlguiding hved joined forces to put in place digital tools to improve their recruitment of volunteers.
The move follows a donation of more than £2m from Pears Foundation.
Through the funding the two charities will look to use technology to review and improve the experience of joining as a volunteer.
The partnership takes place as both charities are experiencing similar challenges in improving volunteer recruitment, Reducing duplication and red tape are other factors.
“By working together, we can recruit more volunteers allowing us to impact the lives of more young people from more communities,” said Scout head of volunteering Jack Caine.
“I am very excited about being a part of this work and cannot wait to see the positive impact it will have on both our existing and new volunteers.”

Emma Dixon, a senior volunteer supporting the project at Girlguiding added: “This project is such a great piece of work to collaborate on. Not only will it truly transform and improve the way our organisations recruit and welcome new volunteers, but it also helps shout out to the wider world about our modern, flexible, and innovative approach to volunteering!”
