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!

Хочу поблагодарить Ольгу Шайхееву. Абсолютно приятный и ответственный человек. Когда мне было сложно, Русский Центр Аризоны поддержал меня морально и духовно, а так-же помог разобраться во многих юридических вопросах. Спасибо Русскому Центру Аризоны за его работу, и его дружный коллектив.

I am preparing to participate at the Easter Tea party of Arizona Russian Center. This will be real celebration of Russian culture and language! Volunteering for Russian Center gives me opportunity to practice Russian language and to make new Russian friends. Besides that, all meetings are very friendly and happy! Welcome to join!

I am pretty happy to help AZ Russian Center with their new project started this spring. Organization's first meeting was so welcoming, friendly and informative, that I decided to donate my time, professional help and money towards community services. I am looking forward with the hope of big success of ARC charitable work!

Excellent job did Arizona Russian Center lately! Their New Year program for kids was great, and the last New Year party was awesome! My kid enjoyed Russian Father Frost surprise visit at our home, and I with my wife and parents enjoyed Russian New Year Celebration party very much! Thanks, ARC! We are waiting for another event!

Change the World this Spring! Host a foreign exchange student from countries such as Italy, Germany, France, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, China, Thailand, and many others around the world that would make the perfect addition to your family! World Heritage has high school students in need of host families for the 2013-2014 school year (semester stays are also available) who are excited to come to the USA!
Students have their own spending money and insurance. Host families provide the home (bed and meals) and most importantly a caring atmosphere to include them as true family members. There is no financial compensation, just soul compensation!
If you are interested in opening your home and sharing your family life with a young person from abroad, please email local Area Coordinator Krista Detterbeck at krista@world-heritage.org. Please also visit our website at www.whHosts.com.
World Heritage, a well-established, non-profit student exchange program, is seeking local Area Representatives to dedicate their passion for people to provide high school students from all over the world with program support and host families. There are many opportunities for financial bonuses and stipends as well! Your role would be to match people with the list of eager teenagers.
If you like working with young people, have loads of energy, enthusiasm, and a genuine desire to help make your community a little more international, please check out the website at www.world-heritage.org or email Krista at krista@world-heritage.org, the Area Coordinator, to get involved today!
