In order to bolster student pride and strengthen a sense of belonging for Hispanic students, CONEXICONES provides support for clubs organized within the Howard County Public School System (HCPSS). These clubs create a sense of community, celebrate Hispanic heritage and provide leadership experiences that students might otherwise not gain. Each club sponsor, typically a teacher or Hispanic Achievement Liaison, submits an operating plan to provide student enrichment activities during the course of the school year, along with a request for funding to achieve the plan.
