The 2020 Census will determine Federal funding levels and electoral representation for the next 10 years, and it provides critical data to businesses.
It’s hard to find diversity - however Chavez Youth and Community Gym has been opened to accept all cultures , races , age , etc... It’s a beautiful thing it especially teaches our youth that diversity is a beautiful thing and it strengthens us all in community we live. No matter the background we come from - we will walk through this world together and get in the ring together !! Highly recommend gym even for adults !!
Thank you to everyone who came out to support us during our fundraiser today. We appreciate all the shares and likes that help made it a success!
Hello My FB family,

As you probably know this non-profit is one I hold near and dear to my heart ❤️

The Gym was vandalized this week. 😞

So I created a GoFundMe account to raise some funds to help Coach Chavez and the foundation with the damage that was caused as a result.

So if any of you would like to help either with the repairs or just want to donate to a great cause and safe haven in our community, please click on the link below. The account will give you details about what this organization does for the community and our kids.

We are thankful for any donations given, all the funds go directly to the foundation. 🙂

The Chavez Boxing Foundation is a non-profit youth intervention program which offers the sport of boxing to promote discipline, confidence, and motivation.

In many communities, boys and girls are often left to seek companionship and acceptance in gang-infested, dangerous neighborhoods. An increasing number of children live in single parent homes with little or no adult supervision or influence. Growing up in this negative, life-threatening environment can lead to an adverse outlook on life and cause them to fall prey to the dangers of the street. Our under-privileged and at risk youth need to know that someone cares about them. The Chavez Boxing Foundation offers this and more. The Chavez Boxing Foundation is a non-profit youth intervention/prevention program which offers the sport of amateur boxing as an alternative to destructive behavior. Amateur boxing promotes good sportsmanship, discipline and motivation, as well as the development of physical and mental courage. The mission of The Chavez Boxing Foundation is to foster self-esteem, self-discipline, education and good citizenship through promotion of a drug free lifestyle by mentoring and support of its participants. The Chavez Boxing Foundation would appreciate your generous support in the form of a monetary donation of any amount. By partnering with us, you will be helping to keep the dream alive for these kids. Our foundation currently has many needs, which include but are not limited to, the purchase of boxing safety gear, licenses, quality training equipment and ongoing facility and operational cost. If you wish to make a donation, or have any further questions, you may contact Mr. Chavez at 623 206-2639. Thank you for your financial support of our efforts to continue offering our youth hope for the future.

and Thomas. We'll be open again for business on March 3rd.


I didn't make a single penny from training my kids/amateurs last year, and I doubt if I will this year either because of Covid-19 and not being able to do fundraisers. We do it for the Love of our kids and provide a safe and family atmosphere for them. I don't care if there's only 2 kids in here and we're still making a positive impact...then that's all that matters. ❤️🥊

[01/10/21]   To all the parents and amateurs who weren't contacted...
The gym will be closed tomorrow and will re-open on Wednesday. Thank you.

[01/04/21]   The gym will be closed today and will re-open once Coach Chavez is feeling better again. Thanks

[12/28/20]   To all the parents asking, we are closed this week and will be returning on the 4th of January. Thanks, and see you in the New Year!

Hey Everyone Andrea here,

As our youth get involved in the community relationships are expected to build. Part of my responsibility is to help educate the kiddos on ways to stay safe and recognize unhealthy signs.
Here is a great resource that you can easily download on your phone.
