MAIN is a non-profit membership organization of Minnesota immersion educators and programs that was established to:
- Pool resources and create opportunities for professional development that specifically address the needs of immersion practitioners;
- Bring immersion administrators and teachers from all Minnesota immersion programs together to share experiences and learn from each other;
- Support discussion and collaborative problem-solving of issues and challenges that are unique to immersion programming, e.g., teacher recruitment, professional development, public relations related to second language learning;
- Serve as advocates and as an information resource for immersion education at the district and state levels.
