Baby Boomers of Color

The introduction of an assets perspective on boomers of color brings great potential for innovation and the excitement that often accompanies bold new approaches. Unfortunately, bold new approaches also bring resistance to change and cause anxiety, and this can be coupled with the presence of racism, classism, and ageism to make these changes in thinking and service delivery much more arduous to accomplish. This chapter aims to help practitioners classify innovative efforts that tap boomer of color assets. It presents three-part classification and seven-point criteria for evaluating practice, which holds much promise for the field. Practices can be categorized into three classes: best practices, promising practices, and emerging practices. The seven criteria that can be applied to best, promising, and emerging practices are: culturally appropriate effectiveness, impact, replicability, (5) scalabilty, (6) sustainability, and (7) innovativeness.
