Mr. Colella, always an advocate for those needing his professional  services, developed the West Warwick Job Club in 2009, to provide  vocational support, job development, and structured group and individual  vocational counseling to unemployed and underemployed Rhode Island  residents.  This “grass roots” program has attracted local and national  attention, and has been featured in the Providence Journal, The Fiscal  Times, and on local radio stations. Recently, Mr. Colella was invited to  attend and speak about the West Warwick Job Club at a conference in  Washington, D.C., sponsored by the Community and Faith-Based Partnership  and at the Faith Advocates for Jobs National Convention.

Mr. Colella has dual graduate degrees in Divinity and Vocational  Rehabilitation Counseling from the University of Toronto, and is a  Certified Rehabilitation Counselor and a Licensed Vocational Expert for  the Social Security Administration.
