I am very proud to be able to work with Arizona Russian Center for all of you, Arizona citizens. Every participant, helper, volunteer, contractor or the guest of this unique charitable organization is excellent and positively oriented towards all of the traditions, cultural peculiarities and other languages of the people involved. I am very happy to share my knowledge of Russian language through the Arizona Russian News - newspaper, and at the same time to learn more about other cultures... This positive exchange of information is the best available for everyone and everyday experience given to us by Arizona Russian Center.

I came to Arizona from Russia in 2008. One of the many things I wanted to do when first arriving was to connect with the Russian community. I did an internet search on "Russians in Arizona" and the very first result was the Arizona Russian Center. I contacted them and was pleasantly surprised when they invited me to their next administrative meeting. My new friends were very open and friendly, and I immediately felt that if they needed my help I would be happy to help them and vice versa. The events I attended were very well organized with a Russian flavor in many respects. I was always happy to see that the Arizona Russian Center was a center of attraction for all kinds of people, with a firm motivation to build a strong community here. Every time I attended their events I saw Russian-speaking residents and American guests enjoying themselves. That's how I started to volunteer for the Arizona Russian Center as a journalist and an editor (I'm a journalist by training). It was always a pleasure to write articles about their events.

I participated at a New Year event held by the Arizona Russian Center, it was one of the best events that I was ever a part of. The experience and the opportunity was excellent, I had always dreamed of working with such a great team! I hope that I will be fortunate enough to work many more events and projects to come!

I attended an event that was held by the Arizona Russian Center and was pleasantly surprised by the warm friendly acceptance. I did not know anyone there and people happily translated the events for me.

I have volunteered for Arizona Russian Center for a couple of years now. I liked every event we prepared together.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I was very proud.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would want to get them more funding for more events.

I was involved in a car accident in February and did not know what to do. i called Olga and Art and they were very helpfull through the whole process. They recomended me what steps i needed to take, helped me find a great doctor and help answer any other questions I had. I meet with them many times and they were very kind and carind people, they took the time to explain everything to me and what my options were. After the accident and the next few months they called me to see how i was doing with my recovery and if I needed any help. My experience with SHIELD was exellent and I would recomend them to all of my friends.

Я, Виктор , рад, что мне довелось сотрудничать с Русским центром. Это очень ответственная организация, старающаяся об'единить русскоговорящих резидентов проживающих в Аризоне. Я поддерживаю все программы, которые проводит в жизнь Русский центр Аризоны.
