In Fort Pierce, Clinton will make a pitch for millennial voters with a call for national service.

 

According to an aide, Clinton will announce plans for “a dedicated new national program to specifically help those under 30 to participate in service opportunities…

 

“Studies have shown that millennials are particularly interested in volunteerism and are looking for ways to contribute to their communities. Applications to AmeriCorps positions are five times greater than the current number of slots available and the Peace Corps has seen a 32 percent increase in applications compared to the previous year.”
