Five Stages of Service Learning:
Inventory and Investigation- we notice that bullying
among LGBTQ community is an issue in our school
and that LGBTQ is becoming more prevalent.
Preparation and Planning- After pre-screening
students, counselors need to collaborate with health
educators about acceptance and tolerance of the
LGBTQ community. We will plan out lessons and
activities that will apply knowledge that students will
have learned during that class. On the last week, we
will do a wrap-up with the post-test in order to
evaluate how successful the program was.
Action- For the first week, we will have ice breakers and teach
students about the different gender identities. The second week,
we will have a recap of what we discussed in the first session
and then discuss sexual orientation. The third week we will
discuss the daily struggles that students of the LGBTQ
community face. The fourth week we will discuss, the coming
out process. Week five, we will discuss politics surrounding the
LGBTQ community. Week six, we will discuss how bullying
can impact students. Week seven, we will discuss how the media
portrays the LGBTQ community and how celebrity role models
can be influential to students of the community . Week eight, we
will have a program wrap up and the post test.
Reflection- How we can improve the program.
Demonstration Showcase of SL projects We will
put the program in the school newsletter. Students will
do a role-playing demonstration to Elementary
students about what they have learned in the program.

Evaluation Surveys as a pre-test in the beginning of the

program and post-test on the last week of the program. Students
will also make posters about the effects of bullying peers.
