Tried and True Small Engines is a Lakes Center for Youth and Families social enterprise program in Forest Lake that allows youth to gain work experience. Tried and True will give youth a look at what it takes to run a small business, as well as get hands on experience with small engines under the supervision of a professional mechanic.
