Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg on Wednesday rolled out a national service plan that would include 1 million members by 2026. The plan, "A New Call to Service," would give additional funds to programs like AmeriCorps and increase the number of their positions to 250,000, which, according to The Associated Press, would cost $20 billion over 10 years.
Buttigieg also aims to create new organizations like a Climate Corps, Community Health Corps and Intergenerational Service Corps.
