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!

We have a good partnership with Arizona Russian Center for several months and will continue. They are very hospitable and supportive. They have a lot of events and activities for Russian Community. This center became a friendly home for many Russian speaking people. Many connections started in this Center. We are very appreciate them for help and support. We hope they will provide more services for healthy life and help people to live longer and happier.

This is a great organization. I'm not Russian and have only very limited Russian proficiency, yet I feel very welcome when I attend their events. Even though I didn't know anyone when I went for the first time, the folks were warm and I met some delightful people. I don't make it to all their events, but when I do, I thoroughly enjoy myself and feel like I'm part of their community even though I am just a newcomer. I think that anyone who wants to have more contact with another culture and language would enjoy the experience of coming to the ARC's parties.
I am also taking advantage of the Russian classes they offer. It's a long drive for me, yet worth it again because of the people and the sense of community. Russian's a difficult language to learn under the best of circumstances, so having a small class taught by a native speaker with other people who are also impassioned about learning the language is a plus.

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.

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!

Great experience. The ARC is a pre-eminent, mobile and well operated center with an exclusive role of providing both Russian and Non-Russian speaking with a large number of useful and varied programs.
The staff of ARC are very kind, helpful, open-minded, easy to work with and very receptive to others needs.
