Construction
(Elements in parentheses are optional.)
AVerb: て-form
から
Basic Examples
べてから => After I eat..
おかあさんはしごとをしてから => After mom works...

This is a fairly simple form that focuses on the linear progression between 2 actions/events. It does not suggest any kind of cause/effect relationship, just that one event comes after another.
Past and non-past usage
It's important to remember that regardless of when the events take place (past or non-past), the first verb is always in the て form.

     から        (correct)

Yesterday, I studied after I ate.

     から       (correct)

Today, I'll study after I eat.

てから puts priority on the first action in the sentence and suggests it's a required action in order that the second one happen.
ってからなさい。= Come back to school once you've recovered from the cold.
で does not carry such a nuance: it plainly shows a sequence of actions.

The same purpose can be achieved with Verb たform + あと, second clause. For example, the above sentences could be:
きのう、べたあと、しました。
べたあとします。

Well, I was trying to make a direct suggestion for a possible correction on the sentence, but the page was taking half my life to load. So, in example #2, should it not be ボランティアをします rather than ボランティアをする so that it is in keeping with the tense in the sentence that follows it in polite form? Or perhaps the second sentence should be in casual form?
Perhaps this is a grammar I don't know...?

Hmm, sorry to hear that it was slow. I'm actually migrating the site to a new web server in the next few weeks, so that should help. I checked, and while it would fly in casual speech, it'd probably be better to keep them the same. I'll fix it right now. Thanks!

No problem ^^ One little problem [the slow thing] doesn't bother me. I realise that my comment may have seemed snarky since I began with "Well", but that is just common in my speech. I'll look forward to this move though.

So, what I'm understanding about this grammar is that its used in reference to you, the first person, and not another person (3rd person)?

It can refer to third person subjects - there are several models (click the 'model sentences' tab) that show this :).

in the third example sentence, I'm not sure why the 'and' is in red - shouldn't the 'played' be emphasized instead?
