Kylie Musolf - 2014 Mawby Intern

We are pleased to have Kylie Musolf on board to help plan and facilitate the 2014 Youth Philanthropy and Service Camp. In 1995, as a result of a generous gift from Dr. Russell G. Mawby, president emeritus of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Mawby Fund for Kids was established as a permanent endowment fund at CMF to promote the involvement of Michigan youth in philanthropy. The priority of the Fund is to support a summer internship at CMF for a college student who is an alumnus of a Michigan Community Foundation Youth Advisory Committee (YAC).  The Mawby Fund for Kids Summer Internship is a paid internship focused on planning the annual Youth Grantmakers Summer Leadership Conference. 

Kylie Musolf is a recent graduate of the American University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy.  She is originally from Lenawee County, where she served on the Lenawee Youth Council from 2007-2011. Kylie was on the Michigan Community Foundation Youth Project committee from 2008-2011 and has dreamed of being the Mawby Intern since she was 13 years old.

Most recently, Kylie served as the Development and Program Intern for the District Alliance for Safe Housing (DASH) in Washington, DC. While at DASH Kylie focused on grant writing and research, donor development, and facilitating a service learning club for the children of survivors of domestic and sexual violence.

At American University, Kylie was a brother of the national service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega; served on the Eagle Endowment Council for Community Engagement; and was a teaching assistant for the philosophy department.

Eventually Kylie intends to become a professor of philosophy; her philosophical interests include critical theory, ethics of care, Kierkegaard, and Judith Butler. Some other interests include baseball, bubble tea, Lil Bub, kale smoothies, art museums, sushi, and laffy taffy jokes. Kylie is currently reading Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace.
