KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Chelsea Clinton is urging young Ukrainians to engage in philanthropy and civic activism.

The daughter of former U.S. President Bill Clinton and current Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton told a group of Ukrainian university students in Kiev Tuesday that being engaged in the world is "part of being a good person."

The 31-year-old Clinton said there is always a gap between what the government and the private sector can provide, and that gap must be filled by the work of charity and non-governmental organizations.

Clinton is pursuing a doctorate at Oxford and does philanthropic work for the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative. She recently took up a job as a correspondent for the U.S. television network NBC.
