MVA started in July 2012 when the former HI-Toledo Area Council was dissolved in a national reorganization of Hostelling International USA. We wish our friends at HI-USA all the best with their new, unified organization, and we hope to partner with them in the future as a local “Friends of Hostelling” organization.
HI has helped MVA get started with a loan, which was converted to a grant when our federal tax exempt status was approved. HI has also given us the first of what we hope will be many grants to provide quality programming in the Toledo Area.
Membership is not required to attend Travel Circle programs or to participate in one of our activities.
MVA is a new group of old friends. We intend to build on our legacy with new and exciting programs. We hope that you will be part of it.
