Our Why

The Problem:

Father & Sons: Small Engine Services, Inc. is excited to tackle the problem of youth delinquency and negative pressure. According to A Profile of Youth Offenders in Calgary an interim report released in 2008 by the Canadian Research Institute of Law and The Family, 4 out of 5 factors of youth offenses were directly related to insufficient, un-sustained positive mentorship and support.

Why small engines though?

Other than familiarity and certification in multiple maintenance fields, our founder was personally touched by the power of mentorship that a one-on-one offering like small engine repair can offer impressionable young people. Through it, we account for over 20 hours of every at-risk young person we hire; that is an incredible return on investment for everyone.
