My experience with Arizona Russian Center was excellent! They helped me to move for free, and collected and brought the furniture for me and my child for free. I never saw such help from Russian organization before. Since then I went to their events. New Year party and Children's Protection Day party were very nice organized, happy for everyone and very, very friendly. Thanks everyone, who volunteers for ARC!

If I could I would give them -100 stars. Those guys who name them self as ARC are just scammers actually. Most of their events are just fakes, just a lot of bzzz but nothing was doing. Very small number of people, just very few, are taking risk to be in deal with them. Also I'm not sure but I've heard some of them are under criminal investigations.

Arizona Russian Center is a great resources for Russian Speaking people in Arizona, and the ESL and Citizenship classes are available for people of all levels. Have enjoyed the services and staff of this organization, and will go to their next event.

I had a great experience helping and volunteering with Arizona Russian Center. They are very fun! They are always trying to plan events to celebrate Russian holidays and set up all sorts of fun ways to bring the Russian culture into the area and share it with everyone through dances, dinner parties, and even dressing up as Russian characters and visiting schools and theater. Hopefully they will find a way to expand more int he future.

The Arizona Russian Center has been very helpful. They arranged for a visit of an official from the Russian Consulate and I was able to submit my passport for renewal w/out having to fly to San Francisco. Thank you, guys! You are awesome!

I participated in several events at the Arizona Russian Center and had an amazing experience! The energy is awesome; the people there are very friendly, and the environment there is very diverse which is plus! I learned a lot about the Russian culture and tradition(s). Not only was it a great educational experience, but the food was astounding! I look forward to future events and recommend this to anyone interested in Russian culture!

Я очень рада ,что имею в своём городе ,такой центр! Где люди помогают друг другу, знакомятся, знакомят со сверстниками и развивают культуру и исторические ценности своих детей. Прекрасно организованые детские мероприятия, мои дети просто в восторге. Так-же прекрасно спланироавные и подготовленые праздники для взрослых . Теплота, доброта, как дома! Отдельное спасибо Ольге Шахеевой за тяжёлый и позитивный труд!!!
