Everyone employed in Cobo Center is invited and encouraged to participate in the community engagement events hosted by Cobo during the year. Opportunities to work in an environment that encourages personal development and active participation in the continued success of the facility are afforded to everyone.
The Cobo Cares program is ongoing during the spring, summer and fall seasons, providing free exercise, networking and community engagement opportunities for the local downtown community. Activities like Zumba, Yoga and Tai Chi are coupled with opportunities to give back to local non profits that support the areas needy such as Forgotten Harvest and COTS.
Activities are conducted on the venue's outdoor terrace, Cobo Square, in view of the 4,000 square-foot marquee digital sign, which is sometimes incorporated into the festivities in creative and interactive ways.
volunteerism and community beautification
Each year, Cobo Center employees along with their friends, family and other invested community members participate in year-round beautification efforts for the downtown Detroit area. Volunteers help clean around homes, businesses, churches and schools, and board up vacant houses. The planting of flowers, plants or trees also is encouraged.
