Brief History of FCE
FCE was founded in December 1984 in response to a need for community as perceived by one of the founding members, Dr. M. Scott Peck, author of The Road Less Traveled,The Different Drum, and A World Waiting to Be Born. Lecturing throughout the country, Dr. Peck found vast numbers of people and organizations expressing a longing for, and a lack of community in their lives. Along with eleven others, Dr. Peck formed the foundation to spread the work of community building as a means to address this deep yearning for authentic human connection.
Since its inception over 30 years ago, FCE has actively built community between people from conflicting ethnic groups, religions and political beliefs in numerous national and international locations. From South Africa to Bosnia and beyond, FCE's Community Building workshops and Community Facilitation programs have helped individuals around the globe to experience learning and living the principles of community. Today, FCE continues to guide the world toward more effective communication and the possibility of peace.
