She spoke at the Sunrise Theater in Fort Pierce.

The Democratic presidential nominee made a call for national service, asking young people to be a part of something bigger than themselves. 

She wants to triple the size of the AmeriCorps program, grow the Peace Corps and create a new national service reserve program.

Clinton said she thinks America is strongest when people work together. She said Republican Donald Trump favors a "strongman approach."

Under the new program, people would enroll, receive training and then state and local leaders could call on their help during in natural disasters or emergency situations.

Clinton wants to sign up 5 million people, focusing on people under 30.

Clinton will be in Coral Springs later today.
