That’s why he decided to focus is efforts  exclusively to helping men recuperate a better sense of their self worth in order to be good husbands, fathers and leaders.

A son needs to know that he is cherished, that he is valued, that he is loved, very deeply. He needs to feel this and express this. Feel it and to have the expression actually from his father.


Father Chavez says that while women don’t have trouble showing affection to their children, men often need someone to teach them how to do the same.

This is only the first step of what Father Chavez’s Amator Institute calls the journey towards masculinity. He says it’s a journey which can also benefit women since it restores the idea of the “good man” that they’ve always cherished.
