I got to ARC's event on 03/09/2014 completely accidentally. Was invited by my friend after our church visit. This meeting left me very surprised by friendly and happy atmosphere. The Russian food was very tasty! I will be very interested to participate more.

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!

If there is any organization out there who knows how to throw a great event, it is this one! I only recently discovered the Arizona Russian Center and decided to attend a few of their events and was shocked at how well they were put together and organized. Not only that, but they made it seem like the Russian culture had taken a vacation from Russia, and came here to Arizona in the form of the Arizona Russian Center! I recommend everyone to visit this organization.

I went along with a friend to one of the events of the Arizona Russian Center and thought it was amazing! They had plenty of food and there was popular Russian music and everyone was having a great time. When the people began to walk onto the open dance floor to dance, they attempted to get everyone else to join them. My experience was quite fun.

I would consider myself a general member of the public though I volunteered once for our Russian New Year party. It was a lot of fun and a great opportunity for me to get together with Russian people that share the same culture with me. The organizers did a great job and they sincerely want to preserve our culture as well as help the Russians in need here in America.
