The wife of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has launched a program to help high school students get access to job training programs, a move that comes after keeping a low public profile since Emanuel took office last year.
Amy Rule on Friday highlighted the work of Urban Alliance, a non-profit organization now in Chicago. It was the first time she granted interviews as Chicago's first lady.
The program is designed to provide high school seniors with instruction on work-place etiquette. The job-training initiative also pairs students with companies like Ariel Investments.
More than seventy students from six Chicago schools have already participated in the program.
Rule will be holding more public events to promote the program in the coming weeks.
