I am a recent immigrant from Russia and new to Phoenix. The Russian Center helped my to settle down and meet similar Russian friends that could share with me. I became more involved and contributed regularly to the Russian Newspaper. We also had fun meetings and lunch

This organization always tries it's hardest to do what they can to help people. I've helped out several times and am still surprised by how much this organization does.

My wife is from Russia, and I speak intermediate Russian and like Russian culture. We were new to Arizona and the Russian Center introduced us to new friends. My wife contributes articles to the newspaper.The Russian Center is an excellent resource for both immigrants and people interested in Russia. Apart from social advantages, the Center also provides advice on settling down in America, including immigration and work paperwork

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

My wife from Russia has met new Russian friends, and as we are new to Arizona we both now have new friends. This has certainly made us much happier. Also I have been able to practice my Russian.

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

A more interative website or Facebook bage would allow more frequent sharing of ideas.

Русский Центр Аризоны - уникальная организация, потому что в ней не делают разделения между разными народами, культурами, религиями или уровнями профессионализма участников. Любой человек может не только прийти на любое мероприятие, но и учавствовать в его подготовке. Никого не обидят и никому не откажут! Спасибо создателям Русского Центра за такой дружеский подход к деятельности данной организации!

A lot of people were talking to me about the Arizona Russian Center, so I decided I needed to check them out. Everyone I spoke to was very friendly, and I learned a lot about Russian culture I had never known. I felt very welcome. I will be definitely attending their next event.

I have been impressed by the Arizona Russian Center’s events and services. I would like to see more events, more often. Last year’s picnic was so highly attended and welcoming, I really enjoyed myself. I wasn’t able to go the Russian new year’s evening party, but I heard it was even better than last year. It is already on my calendar for this year. I hope we have something else soon!

I’m so grateful for the Arizona Russian Center. It’s so comforting to know of a place I can go to get the help I need, and to just feel supported. I am very much looking forward to more of their events, I hope they have one soon. The last ones I went to were a fantastic time, I would recommend it to anyone. They really build a sense of community.
