Brief History:

The Clemente Veterans’ Initiative in Dorchester encourages and accepts applications from all veterans, regardless of race, gender identity, service years, deployment history, disability status, or discharge status.

All books and instructional materials are provided at no cost. Transportation assistance is also available for those who need it.
