Making young UU's stick

There's been a few posts on keeping kids raised UU in Church. I'm not going to gather them up and link them here, but it's a recurring topic in the UU blogosphere.

I'm betting the answer simple: the young are single and few UU Churches offer much for single people. That's an assertion from knowing three UU Churches over the years in Illinois and Northern Virginia. Those Churches oriented towards families, couples, and maybe surviving partners, but offered very little to single people.

There must certainly be exceptions (Micah's Porch in Chicago?) but I'm betting darn few.
