Joey Caban,  known as "Joey Da Barber,"  says since his story aired Monday he's had as many as seven teens reach out to apprentice at his shop in Vails Gate. 
Caban is offering to train kids for free, provide their clipper kits and pay for their licensing under his "Clippers Not Guns" initiative.
He started a GoFundMe to help cover expenses for all interested kids.
