Outreach Programs

The Jerry L. Johns Literacy Clinic has established partnerships in the DeKalb and Sycamore area.  These partnerships offer tutoring, homework help, as well as making books available for families.  If you are interested in establishing a partnership, please contact us.

DeKalb Community Unit School District 428 – We work in collaboration with DeKalb Community Unit School District 428 to provide assistance in an after-school program for upper elementary students at Littlejohn Elementary School.  The program provides academic support and mentoring through one-on-one and small group activities.

Little Free Libraries - We work to spread literacy and the love of reading through the DeKalb/Sycamore community by making books readily available to children and their families. If you would like to contribute books or have an idea for a community location for a Little Free Library like the one pictured above, please contact the Jerry L. Johns Literacy Clinic at literacyclinic@niu.edu. Click here to find a map of locations in the DeKalb/Sycamore area.
