Community Involvement

Involvement Takes Heart. Cooper Standard's community initiative reached far beyond providing financial assistance. We also reach out to the community in many ways by donating our time to special causes.

Cooper Standard and our employees embrace the importance of community involvement. For example, we have created a special program called "Inspirations" for middle school students. "Inspirations" is a set of eight fun hands-on workshops, 2 1/2 hours each, delivered once a month by Cooper Standard engineers and technical employees. The program utilizes exercises taught to adult engineers within Cooper's Lean and Six Sigma training, but are modified for middle school learners. It is designed to promote math and science with an emphasis on teamwork, understanding requirements, and planning.

In 2008, Cooper Standard played a key role in the opening of Detroit's first free medical center for Detroit's homeless children and their mothers in partnership with radio celebrity and author Mitch Albom. Cooper Standard helped raise the initial funds to open the clinic and coordinates many fundraising activities throughout the year to help sustain the clinic.
