The Cardinal Young Alumni Board is entirely volunteer based and we are always looking for new members!

If you are interested in planning events or just learning more about CYA, send one of us a note or join us at our next monthly board meeting.


Michael Silverman, President of Cardinal Young Alumni, MS&E '13

In addition to serving as President of CYA, Michael is an Associate at Banneker Partners., where he invests in internet software companies. Michael graduated from Stanford in 2013 with a degree in Management Science & Engineering (MS&E). You can likely find him at as many CYA events as he can attend, volunteering with the National Park Service, or finding the next great ice cream spot in San Francisco.
