For theDuSu.com, an information hub by young people, for young people focusing on their issues and what connects them to Duluth and Superior
To attract and retain young adults in Duluth and Superior, the community foundation created TheDuSu.com, an online portal designed to help young adults share information and ideas. Currently, the portal provides information on working, living, playing and connecting in the Twin Ports. This grant will help increase site interactivity, enhance content, conduct research and increase guerrilla marketing tactics so TheDuSu can better provide the information young people need to thrive in the area.
