Parents as Teachers (PAT) is an early childhood parent education and family support program designed to empower parents to give their children the best possible start in life. Home visits and group socialization are offered to families in 19 communities across the state. The PAT approach is to support all children so that they will learn, grow and develop to realize their full potential.

An advisory board serves to evaluate current services and explore expanding services. Advisory board members are representatives from community agencies, Native organizations and community Elders. RurAL CAP also houses the Alaska PAT State Office.
