The Obama Administration will call on Americans to serve in order to meet the nation's challenges. President-Elect Obama will expand national service programs like AmeriCorps and Peace Corps and will create a new Classroom Corps to help teachers in underserved schools, as well as a new Health Corps, Clean Energy Corps, and Veterans Corps. Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year. Obama will encourage retiring Americans to serve by improving programs available for individuals over age 55, while at the same time promoting youth programs such as Youth Build and Head Start.
UPDATE: It seems I am getting burned in the comments because the text has changed from "required" to "by setting a goal."
I find it disappointing that the intelligent people on newsvine would assume they were punked (or jedi-punked as one commenter put it..funny I like that) rather than investigate for themselves.
Several other sites have covered this and have noted the page and even the change.
Unfortunately, when I pull up the google cache for that site, the original text is not there.
