Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has championed public service opportunities during a campaign stop in New Hampshire, saying the work could help treat some of the woes facing the country today.

The Democratic presidential hopeful says public service "changes your life." Gillibrand says, "That's why I want national service. That's why I want to make it the cornerstone of my presidency."

The New York senator held a civic service round table in Manchester on Saturday as she finishes a two-day swing through the first-in-the-nation primary state.

She said she "would like to tell anyone in America, if you're willing to do two years of public service, you can get your college degree paid for. So if you're willing to do a year and only a year, you can get two years paid for."
