Defiant Hope is both a concept and an organization. More than 20 years ago, La-Verna Fountain
began working with individuals and organizations to help them pursue their visions and dreams regardless of life’s difficult circumstances. Defiant Hope Consulting and Training was born in 1997 creating a structure to hold La-Verna’s own vision and dreams.
Through Defiant Hope Consulting and Training, individuals can receive one-on-one life coaching
and organizations can obtain an array of training and professional services
including training in cultural diversity, conflict resolution, nonviolence as a way of life, working with teenagers and enhanced communications. Additional services include life coaching, negotiation and mediation. These services are provided using a cadre of trained, skilled and certified mediators, coaches, and negotiators selected to meet the specific needs of the individual clients.
With more than two decades experience in program development, Defiant Hope Consulting and Training offers consulting services on developing and managing effective mentorship programs for teenagers, small and disadvantaged businesses as well as corporate communications, building an effective diverse workforce and implementing a successful service project.
