The city is located on the Baltic coast and is the capital of the Pomeranian Voivodeship. It is Poland's principal seaport and the centre of the country fourth-largest metropolitan area. The city lies on the southern edge of Gdańsk Bay (of the Baltic Sea), in a conurbation with the city of Gdynia, Sopot and suburban communities, which together form a metropolitan area called the Tricity (Trójmiasto), with a population approaching 1.4 million.
Gdańsk itself has a population of 460,427, making it the largest city in the Pomerania region of Northern Poland. The city's history is complex, with periods of Polish rule, periods of Prusso-German rule and periods of autonomy or self-rule as a "free city". Between the world wars, the Free City of Danzig was in a customs union with Poland and was located between German East Prussia and the so-called Polish Corridor.
Gdańsk was the birthplace of the Solidarity movement, formed in 1980, which played a major role in bringing an end to Communist rule in Poland and helped precipitate the collapse of the Eastern Bloc, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
The volunteer will work with different target groups: local community, seniors, kids, young people, scouts, volunteers.
